ODEP Announces 2023 NDEAM Theme – Advancing Access and Equity

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 “Advancing Access and Equity.” Similarly, ODEP will use “Advancing Access and Equity: Then, Now and Next” to celebrate this year’s 50th anniversary of the passage of the Rehabilitation Act, which prohibits discrimination based on disability in employment by federal agencies, federal contractors and recipients of federal funds, and in the delivery of federally funded programs and activities.

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 2023, including the official poster, will be released in coming months. Find tools and ideas for celebrating NDEAM.

Labor Department Launches Mental Health at Work Initiative

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month in May, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) launched Mental Health at Work—a new initiative that connects work being done across DOL agencies to improve worker wellbeing, reduce stigma, and promote equitable access to mental health resources and treatment, especially for historically marginalized populations. As part of this, DOL developed a new webpage centralizing workplace mental health tools and resources and published a blog post highlighting the importance of the initiative to DOL’s mission.
