dc.description.abstractDXC’s flagship social impact initiative is the DXC Dandelion Program, established in 2014. The program aims to attract, train and nurture neurodiverse people — such as those with autism, ADHD or dyslexia — helping them hone their unique skills to pursue careers in information and communication technology (ICT). Since its inception, the program has successfully established 12 teams across Australia, employing over 100 neurodiverse people into full-time roles focused on cybersecurity, analytics and software testing. We have also employed more than 20 support staff including autism consultants, mental health professionals and technical leads. Through ongoing evidence-based research, along with practical experience, DXC implements a proven framework to support the neurodiverse program participants and make long-term employment possible. Our primary objective of creating a sustainable program by providing the right environment with the right support structure benefits the individuals and their families, their employers and the broader community.en_US
