Employment First: October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month. I plan to send out a message in the next few weeks informing all statewide stakeholders and staff about events that may be happening in their area.
If you are holding an event to honor National Disability Employment Awareness Month, please send us an email with all the details: event information, location, time and date and any other relevant information (website, phone number, email to call). We will publish a list of all the October events related to Disability Employment Awareness in an upcoming message.
This year’s theme for the national event is “Inclusion Drives Innovation.”
If you are interested in getting resources, including posters and social media tips, from the Office of Disability Employment Policy’s website, you can go to https://www.dol.gov/odep/topics/ndeam/. This site also gives ideas for events to hold in your local area.
Email information about your local events to: firstname.lastname@example.org
