National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)
Post from State Council on Developmental Disabilities (SCDD): This October marks the 78th National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM).
We celebrate NDEAM annually to commemorate the many contributions of people with disabilities to America’s workplaces and economy and to teach everyone about disability employment challenges.
Recognizing the importance of ensuring all people have equal opportunity to contribute their skills and talents, this year’s NDEAM theme is “Advancing Access and Equity.”
Employers and employees in all industries can learn more about how to participate in National Disability Employment Awareness Month and ways they can promote its messages — during October and throughout the year — by visiting: https://www.dol.gov/agencies/odep/initiatives/ndeam/year-round.
