© Specialist People Foundation All rights reserved. 12 Customer Reference: IBM Denmark “IBM has a long history of commitment to Diversity - focusing on equal opportunities, eliminating barriers and understanding cultural differences. As a result, when approached by Specialisterne in 2010, IBM quickly expressed its intentions to establish a long-term working relationship with Specialisterne in order to create job opportunities for people with Autism Spectrum Disorders. As we speak, IBM has just hired its first two employees with ASD, with the assistance of Specialisterne. Both jobs will be in the Security Administrations department. In addition, IBM wants now to discuss further how to expand the cooperation, for example by enrolling interns from Specialisterne in various departments.”
