It’s here! National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) kicked off on October 1. How are you celebrating? Held every October, NDEAM is a fitting time to educate about disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities. The 2019 NDEAM theme is “The Right Talent, Right Now.”

NDEAM is led by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), but its true spirit lies in the many observances held at the grassroots level across the nation every year. The Campaign for Disability Employment encourages organizations of all sizes and in all industries to participate in NDEAM.

This year, the CDE is celebrating NDEAM through the #RightTalentRightNow photo-sharing campaign. Learn how to take part in this exciting effort.

For other ideas for supporting NDEAM, visit the website www.dol.gov/ndeam. Suggestions range from simple, such as putting up a poster, to comprehensive, such as implementing a disability education program. However you choose to take part, you’ll be playing an important role in fostering a more inclusive workforce, one where every person is recognized for his or her abilities—every day of every month.

Here’s wishing you a happy and active NDEAM 2019!
