October 2014 is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)

Expect – Employ – Empower

National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is a nationwide campaign that raises awareness about disability employment issues and honors the many contributions of America’s workers with disabilities.

NDEAM is led by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy, but its true benefit derives from the many observances held at the grassroots level across the nation. Employers of all sizes and in all industries are encouraged to participate in NDEAM.

This year’s theme – “Expect – Employ – Empower” encapsulates the spirit of NDEAM in three powerful words. Advancing disability employment is about much more than just hiring. It is about creating and maintaining a continuum of inclusion.
