Campaign for Disability Employment

National Disability Employment Awareness Month

At work, it's what people CAN do that matters!

National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is 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.

What can YOU do?

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.
Governor Greg Abbott, a Texan with a disability, annually proclaims October to be Disability Employment Awareness Month in Texas and encourages all Texans to learn more about disability employment.
