The Campaign for Disability Employment (CDE) is delighted to welcome the National Organization on Disability (NOD) as the campaign’s latest Member. In its new role, NOD will meet regularly with the Office of Disability Employment Policy and fellow CDE Members to help steer the multi-faceted campaign and amplify its messages. NOD is a private, non-profit organization that promotes the full participation and contributions of America’s people with disabilities in all aspects of life. Much of NOD’s activities focus on increasing employment opportunities for the 80-percent of working-age Americans with disabilities who are not employed. To learn more, visit www.nod.org.

Workplace disability inclusion is about more than hiring; it’s about facilitating a disability-inclusive culture across an organization’s employment lifecycle, from application to onboarding to advancement. On January 17, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. ET, the Campaign for Disability Employment will explore this concept during a Twitter chat with its Member the Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion (EARN). Representatives from EARN will be on hand to discuss “Inclusion@Work,” its new employer policy framework outlining seven core components of a disability-inclusive workplace. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with EARN and others to learn and share how these components can and are being put into practice by businesses both large and small. Join using the hashtag #CDEInclusion.
