Campaign for Disability Employment

The Campaign for Disability Employment's (CDE) What can YOU do?” (WCYD) initiative is a positive outreach initiative aimed at increasing the employment rate of people with disabilities by challenging common misperceptions. It sends a clear message: people with disabilities want to work and their talents and abilities benefit businesses both financially and organizationally. By implementing good workplace practices, such as maintaining a flexible and inclusive work environment, businesses can capitalize on the talents of qualified people with disabilities. All it takes is recognizing the value they add to the workplace and fostering a work culture welcoming of the talents of all individuals. We encourage organizations of all sizes and in all industries to join our effort. Vist WhatCanYouDoCampaign.org to learn more! Contact - info@WhatCanYouDoCampaign.org
