National Disability Employment Awareness Month
Each October, SourceAmerica® joins individuals and organizations across our country in commemorating National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This important national observance provides an opportunity to:
- Raise awareness of the invaluable contributions people with disabilities make in the workforce;
- Call attention to the employment-related challenges people with disabilities continue to face; and
- Highlight the many benefits that come from having a more diverse and inclusive workforce.
NDEAM is particularly meaningful to SourceAmerica given our role as a central nonprofit agency for the AbilityOne® Program. This federal program provides employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities, and we take great pride in leading a number of NDEAM-related events and activities each year. Check back for updates on what we're planning for this year's observance!
