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.
Watch the videos below to learn more about how SourceAmerica is promoting the importance of inclusion through advocacy, academia and the workplace. These are just a few of the ways we are helping to build an Inclusion EconomyTM, where people with disabilities are heard AND hired!
