International Specialisterne Community

Specialisterne Foundation

Specialisterne Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation with the goal to generate meaningful employment for one million autistic/neurodivergent persons through social entrepreneurship, corporate sector engagement and a global change in mindset.




In February 2021, Specialisterne Italia launched the first Academy in collaboration with Salesforce, world leader in CRM software and Cloud Computing solutions.

The Academy is a new methodology aimed at the job placement of people on the autism spectrum that is added to the training offer of Specialisterne. The peculiarity of this innovative program lies in the active and constant presence of partner companies throughout the process, starting from the selection process of candidates and candidates up to job placement.

In the Academies, training begins with a selection process in which the partner company is present, designed in such a way as to bring out the potential of the candidates and neurodivergent candidates, followed by a period of technical preparation by the company itself and calibrated on a specific professional figure.

At the same time, Specialisterne takes care of the socio-working training of candidates and raising awareness of the company, in order to promote mutual understanding of the needs and characteristics of both parties. At the end of the training process, depending on the type of Academy and the professional figure that will be trained, candidates can receive an official certification (as in the case of the Salesforce Academy), be hired with a permanent contract offered by Specialisterne and inserted in one of the teams trained on neurodiversity and autism of the partner companies that participated in the creation of the Academy.
