Our relationship with Australian Spatial Analytics (ASA) continues to prosper with members of the team recently moving into our Cremorne office. 

ASA is a registered not-for-profit social enterprise dedicated to training and employing remarkable young spatial analysts with autism, who bring their exceptional abilities to the field of data analytics. 

The organisation's purpose centres on the societal need to digitise for diversity. Spatial analytics is a forward-looking industry, and it is ASA's goal that neurodiverse people be a part of the digital ecosystem. Importantly, the distinct cognitive talents of the neurodiverse people associated with ASA frequently allow them to excel as digital professionals.  

The team commenced working with Ventia in 2021 across telecommunications projects, and that has since expanded to incorporate a number of sectors across Ventia.  

Recently, the team began working with our defence team where they are bringing their skills for spatial data and mapping on Defence Estates.  

Daniel Shields, Talent & Impact Program Manager with ASA said that bringing members of the team into our Cremorne office is a continuation of our growing relationship and a key part of the ASA growth strategy.  

"A big part of what we're trying to do is to upskill young neurodivergent individuals to help them find long term careers," Daniel said.  

We're building out a transition model so they can go and work with our clients such as Ventia, and experience a working environment outside of ASA.
