CDE Launches ‘Working Works’ PSA

Today, in honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the Campaign for Disability Employment (CDE) launched its latest PSA campaign, “Working Works.” Through the voices of several individuals, the PSA explores the many reasons people work, including after injury or illness. Its four primary cast members include Major League Baseball great Cal Ripken, Jr. and three other individuals who partnered with their employers and health-care professionals to make a plan to stay at or return to work following illness or injury. Their stories emphasize the importance of working together on supportive work strategies—for the benefit of individuals, families, employers and the nation. “Working Works” is the fourth in the CDE’s series of PSAs exploring different aspects of disability employment. To learn more, visit the “Working Works” toolkit.

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 to learn more! Contact -
