Women & Autism – November Women’s Group

November 30, 2023, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

An illustration of five women, as seen from the back. They are all different sizes, shapes, colours and their arms are linked across the back. Regardless of their differences they are connected.

You’re invited to join our November Women’s Group.

In each Women’s Group, 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’ll build on previous discussions about relationships, with a focus on professional relationships, friendships in the workplace, boundary setting and tips and tricks for socializing at work. Newcomers are always welcome, as each discussion is unique.

Please note: At the end of this session, we will be welcoming Eleni Moumos, a student researcher from the University of Calgary. She will be telling the group about her study which focuses on women with disabilities and their experiences with reproductive and pregnancy care in Alberta. If participants are interested, they may connect with Eleni and ask further questions or agree to participate in her study. Eleni is simply presenting her information, as it may be applicable to some group members. If you aren’t interested to hear about the study, you are welcome to leave before her short presentation.

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.
