NATIONAL DISABILITY EMPLOYMENT
AWARENESS MONTH 2021

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). The goal of NDEAM is to highlight the contributions and value people with disabilities bring to the workforce. This year’s theme is America’s Recovery: Powered by Inclusion.

As our nation works to rebound economically from the impact of the pandemic, it is important that people with disabilities have access to employment opportunities and that businesses are committed to diversity and inclusion. NDEAM may take place once a year but hiring qualified and talented people with disabilities is something that companies can do every day.
