The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy has unveiled the official poster for National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) 2021. Available for download in both English and Spanish, the poster illustrates this year’s NDEAM theme, “America’s Recovery: Powered by Inclusion.” Through bold text and imagery, the poster conveys the importance of ensuring that people with disabilities have full access to employment and community involvement during the national recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. NDEAM is held each October to commemorate the many and varied contributions of people with disabilities to America’s workplaces and economy. Learn more about NDEAM.
