ODEP Announces 2018 NDEAM Theme – America’s Workforce: Empowering All

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy has announced that this year’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) theme will be America’s Workforce: Empowering All. “A workforce that empowers everyone is good for job seekers as well as job creators,” said the U.S. Secretary of Labor when announcing the theme. “Over the past year, the unemployment rate for individuals with disabilities has significantly declined. Continued steady job creation will provide even more opportunities for all Americans to get hired and provide for their families.” 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. More information on NDEAM 2018, including the official poster, will be released in coming weeks. Find tools and ideas for celebrating NDEAM.
