October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month

Held each October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is a campaign to raise awareness about disability employment issues. NDEAM celebrates the many and varied contributions of workers with disabilities across America. This year’s theme is "Expect. Employ. Empower."
