Women & Autism – June Women’s Group

June 6, 2024, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

On a white background, in the middle of the image, there is a vector graphic showing two women having coffee and engaging with each other in laughter.

Find community with our Women’s Group. In each meeting we provide timely information on topics that are important to Autistic women. These sessions are intended to provide a safe space for women to connect, ask questions, share stories, and enjoy valuable peer connection.

In this particular session, we will provide tips and strategies for finding Autistic joy! The co-facilitators will share information on the topic and engage the group in discussion. Participants are invited to share the things that bring them joy, such as special interests, sensory experiences and more!

Please note: During this session, Sinneave staff, guest presenters, and attendees may share information about community resources. Information provided may not always be accurate, up-to-date, or reliable. Attendees are encouraged to be critical consumers of information available on the internet. Providing information about a community resource is not endorsement and Sinneave does not assume any risk for the outcome of using the information shared during this session.

All are welcome no matter how you identify, however, please be aware that information and resources provided are based on female assigned at birth. All gender expressions are welcome.

About the Facilitators

The Women’s Group is co-facilitated by two vibrant, Autistic self-advocates, who are passionate about sharing their lived experience and what it means to navigate life as neurodivergent women. Their hope is to create a safe space for Autistic and neurodivergent women to learn from and help each other, make valuable peer connections, and have fun in the process.

If you have any questions about this session, or need help navigating Sinneave Connects, please contact us by emailing info@sinneavefoundation.org or calling 403 210-5000. We’re here to help!

Please note: While advance registration is not necessary for most of our Learning & Connection activities (you are welcome to just drop-in), IF you do pre-register it helps us in our planning AND allows us to notify you in the event of a last-minute change or cancellation. Either way, we’d love to see you!
