Texas A&M Human Resources Supports the Campaign for Disability Employment
At work, it's what people CAN do that matters!
It’s finally here—National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) 2016! Held every October, NDEAM is an opportune time to educate about disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities. The 2016 NDEAM theme is #InclusionWorks, and given this year’s hashtag theme, we’re encouraging individuals and groups to take their NDEAM spirit online by posting images on social media illustrating the many ways “inclusion works.”
The Campaign for Disability Employment is a collaborative effort to promote positive employment outcomes for people with disabilities. Every day, people with disabilities add value to America's workplaces – and now, they can inform employers and others about their talents, abilities and employment success through a website and public education campaign.
The Campaign for Disability Employment has launched a national effort designed to promote the hiring, retention and advancement of people with disabilities and dispel negative stereotypes about disability and employment.
What can YOU do? It's easy for people with disabilities, and others, to participate in the Campaign and drive positive change. For example, the campaign's website, whatcanyoudocampaign.org, offers users the chance to learn, express their commitment to disability employment efforts and share their employment experiences. The site offers posters your department can use to show your support for the campaign. They are not dated so you may leave them posted throughout the year. For posters print them here or order your own sets.
The Campaign for Disability Employment seeks to promote positive employment outcomes for people with disabilities by encouraging employers, and others, to recognize the value and talent that people with disabilities bring to the workplace, as well as the dividend to be realized by fully including people with disabilities at work.
