The Maryland Abilities Advocates are an employee led group at Stanley Black & Decker. The group aims to bring awareness to visible and invisible abilities as well as educate people and promote inclusion.

The group is working with Autism Speaks to help include people with autism in the working class. The NxtGen program is a community college curriculum that helps people with autism train and prepare for skilled labor jobs in manufacturing.

You can help the mission by joining in the virtual Autism Speaks Walk on Saturday, October 31. Get out, enjoy the weather, and walk 1.54 miles for a great cause.
