Campaign for Disability Employment Offers Online Features
Users can download CDE support badges and share inclusive workplace practices
At work, it’s what people CAN do that matters. That’s the simple message behind the Campaign for Disability Employment (CDE)—a public awareness campaign to highlight the value and talent people with disabilities add to America’s workplaces and economy.
A collaborative of leading disability and business organizations, the CDE offers a series of online features to support its efforts to promote the hiring, retention and advancement of people with disabilities. These include CDE support badges that users can display on their own Web sites and blogs, an area where employers can share their own policies and practices designed to foster an inclusive work environment, and page that features organizations that have demonstrated support for the CDE. Users can access these features by clicking ENGAGE on the navigation bar of the CDE’s Web site: WhatCanYouDoCampaign.org.
The new features complement the CDE’s online Outreach Toolkit – a central resource for accessing education and outreach materials related to the “What can YOU do?” effort. The Toolkit allows users to:
- Download and share the CDE’s “Who I Am,” “Because” PSA and the award-winning “I Can” PSA
- Order free posters and PSA discussion guides
- Link to the CDE Web site, WhatCanYouDoCampaign.org

- Issue a CDE press release
- Host a “What can YOU do?” celebration
- Connect with the CDE on Facebook and LinkedIn
- Access the CDE’s Spanish-language Web site and resources
By leveraging these tools and resources, individuals and organizations can further the important message that at work, it’s what people CAN do that matters.
