CDE Announcements

Join the #ICanCDE Photo-Sharing Campaign on Social Media

Ready to “Say Cheese”? The Campaign for Disability Employment (CDE) is excited to announce the launch of our first ever photo-sharing effort! To help spread the message that, “At work, it’s what people CAN do that matters,” we’re inviting people with disabilities and other friends of the CDE to share photos on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram that highlight what they CAN do at work. Just use the hashtag #ICanCDE when you post your photo.

To participate on Facebook, consider changing your profile photo to a picture for the campaign, and then add our customized photo frame. Or, you can print and hold this sign in your photo and post it to your feeds on all three platforms.

Don’t forget to make your posts accessible by describing your photos in the captions of your posts. (Twitter and Facebook also allow you to add alt-text descriptions to your images.)

We can’t wait to see your photos illustrating the many contributions of people with disabilities—all across social media and in workplaces far and wide.

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

#ThursdayThought from Seyed Yadegari, Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer at 1st Bank, Division of Glacier Bank: “I have found that the employment of people with disabilities has proven to be a good and common sense business decision. It reduces operational cost, increases efficiency and uplifts the morale among other employees.”

#ThursdayThought from Angie Strouth, Assistant Vice President, Avery Hall Insurance Group: "They say that employers who offer internships for people with disabilities are more likely to hire a person with a disability than those who do not. That's certainly been the case at our company, where one great intern served as a gateway to a disability-inclusive workplace culture."
