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 The Right Talent, Right Now. “Every day, individuals with disabilities add significant value and talent to our workforce and economy,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta. “Individuals with disabilities have the right talent, right now.” 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 2019, including the official poster, will be released in coming weeks. Find tools and ideas for celebrating NDEAM.

Want to learn more about the individuals featured in the Campaign for Disability Employment’s (CDE) “Working Works” public service announcement (PSA)? Three new videos feature interviews with several of its cast members, including: Bruce Goebel, a cabinet maker who had a machinery accident that severed his right hand; Chanelle Houston, a research analyst who experienced a spinal cord injury in 2009; and Ish Escobar, a veteran with service-connected disabilities. In the videos, Bruce, Chanelle and Ish talk about their experiences returning to work after injury or illness and the important role that different people—including employers, colleagues, healthcare professionals and family members—played in supporting them along the way. View the videos and read the bios of the PSA cast members.

From the @adasoutheast webinar: Why disclose a disability at work? To address any questions or concerns head on, receive reasonable accommodations, offer a competitive edge in the selection progress (for federal contractors, for example), bring your "whole self" to work, etc. https://t.co/6UbYqjqdeA
