Resources Available for NDEAM 2022: Disability: Part of the Equity Equation

As National Disabilities Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), celebrated in October, approaches, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is providing a range of resource materials that can be used by organizations in planning and implementing their activities. The latest resource to be issued, a poster, highlights the NDEAM theme: “Disability: Part of the Equity Equation.” As reported in a recent Bulletin, NDEAM recognizes the important role of people with disabilities in contributing to a “diverse and inclusive American workforce” and salutes workers with disabilities, past and present, and “showcases supportive, inclusive employment policies and practices.” Additional materials are available, including a social media kit, drop-in articles, sample proclamation, year-round strategies for employers to advance disability inclusion, and more. To access the poster and other offerings, visit the DOL Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) Resource webpage on Disability: Part of the Equity Equation. In the coming weeks, additional information and updates about NDEAM will appear in the Bulletin.
