National Disability Employment Awareness Month — Celebrating 70 Years!

Held each October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is a time to celebrate the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities. The theme for this year — which marks 70 years since the first observance — is “My Disability is One Part of Who I Am.” This year’s NDEAM theme comes from the Campaign for Disability Employment’s Who I Am” PSA, which features nine people with disabilities sharing the many ways they describe themselves, including their occupations. Check out the blog post NDEAM 2015: My Disability Is One Part of Who I Am by Jennifer Sheehy, Deputy Assistant Secretary, U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Disability Employment Policy.
