Cargill Ag Horizons learns about autism, gifts AuSM

AgHorizCargillwebThe Northern River Region of Cargill Ag Horizons recently invited AuSM to present to its sales team to create empathy for people with autism and their families.

"One goal was to encourage this team to be open to developing relationships with people with disabilities," Jim Nelson, Personal Marketing Manager said. "In our small group we have two families that have family members with autism."

"One goal was to encourage this team to be open to developing relationships with people with disabilities," Jim Nelson, Personal Marketing Manager said. "In our small group we have two families that have family members with autism." 

Nelson hopes that having AuSM present helped the team see that every person has value and how important it is to be open to interacting with everyone. "We hope to encourage our team members to be willing to start a conversation versus turning their back to people with disabilities," he said. 

At the close of the presentation, Cargill Ag Horizons presented a donation to AuSM to encourage further training and the continued development of programs and services for the Minnesota autism community.
