National Disability Employment Awareness Month

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), a reminder and a celebration of the talents that people with disabilities bring to the workforce.

Please help us spread awareness. Despite broad talents and contributions:

  • The unemployment rate for people with disabilities is more than double the rate of people without disabilities.
  • People with disabilities are more likely to work part-time than people without disabilities because their hours were cut or they can't find full-time work.
  • Discrimination can begin as early as the application and hiring process.

"The Right Talent, Right Now" is the theme of #NDEAM2019.
