Nonprofit we make is the world’s first workplace centered around autistic employees’ specific needs and abilities.

Pennington, NJ – we make – Autism at Work recently welcomed members of the Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) ­­­­Global Procurement team to our facility for a team building workshop. The efforts were sponsored by Tony Flemmich, Vice President of Global Procurement Enabling Functions and led by Constance Mossop, Executive Director of Global Procurement Transformation & Change Management and Frances Lam, Senior Associate, Global Supplier Diversity, all from BMS.

An extension of our growing work partnership, BMS witnessed first-hand the value in providing work to people on the Autism spectrum and how the environment at we make allows the employees to use their skills in meaningful ways.

The two teams bonded over conversations about their respective occupations, as well as the meaning of work in their lives. Food and concessions were sponsored by BMS and provided through local NJ businesses - Nomad Pizza of Hopewell and Rita’s Water Ice.
