Inclusion Works! National Disability Employment Awareness Month

Each October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is led by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy, but its true spirit lies in the many observances held at the grassroots level across the nation every year. Employers of all sizes and in all industries are encouraged to participate in NDEAM and celebrate the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities.
