As the director overseeing policy and procedures for all programs at we make, Muhammad “Moe” Siddiqu is committed to setting a new standard for the inclusive workplace.
An alumnus of The Pennington School and Albright College, Moe has always had strong ties to the local community. With his initial post-graduate work experience at Mercer County Vocational Schools in 2007, Moe first saw the immediate need and value of vocational training for individuals with special needs.
In 2009, he transitioned to the Hopewell Valley Regional School District (HVRSD) and its Applied Behavioral Analysis program, where he provided direct support to students, as well as serving as coaching assistant for Hopewell Valley Central High School’s varsity football, basketball and track teams. As an integral part of HVRSD’s Transition to Work program, Moe connected the district and its students with employers that could provide gainful vocational opportunities. Recognizing an opportunity for his two passions to become intertwined, Moe also joined a mentoring program that matched student athletes with individuals with special needs.
As part of the managerial team of Eden Autism starting in 2014, Moe fostered partnerships with Mercer County’s most influential companies through his stewardship of the employment program and oversaw a work program through the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.
Named New Jersey’s State Supervisor of the Year at the 2015 APSE National Conference (Association of People Supporting Employment First), Moe was honored for his achievements in paving the way for individuals with autism to discover paths to gainful employment. He has also served as an APSE presenter, providing a framework for new and best practices for businesses, service providers and families.
As he commences a new chapter in his own journey at we make, Moe is more committed than ever to helping individuals with autism begin the most rewarding chapter in theirs.
