Wanda K. Deschamps
Wanda is the founder and principal of Liberty Co – a consultancy focused on increasing the participation level of the Neurodiverse population in the workforce. It places a special emphasis on autism due to Wanda’s own diagnosis at midlife.
Prior to founding Liberty Co, Wanda enjoyed a twenty-five year career in the philanthropic sector serving as a consultant for KCI (Ketchum Canada Inc), a leading Canadian fundraising consultancy as well as an institutional development leader.
A champion for inclusion, she enjoys speaking and writing under the banner of the Inclusion Revolution, a worldwide movement launched in 2018 to spearhead broader thinking about disability, especially disability employment. Wanda is also the catalyst behind the #Women4Women collective focused on gender equality through supporting other women. Combining these two goals provides an avenue for Wanda to be an advocate for women with autism, including as an advisor and participant in research into autistic women’s experiences in the workplace.
Outside of work she relishes time with family and friends, exercising and reading biographies, as well as books about history and current affairs.
Wanda lives in Waterloo, Ontario with her husband and their two sons.
