National Disability Employment Awareness Month
"Inclusion drives innovation." This year's theme for National Disability Employment Awareness Month is borne out by the nearly 115,000 people with disabilities who comprise the SourceAmerica® network of nonprofit agencies. Each October, SourceAmerica shines a spotlight on the strengths and contributions these workers bring to the table.
Through innovative leadership, education, technology and business impact, SourceAmerica is building an inclusion economy that recognizes the talents and contributions of people with disabilities—and creates employment opportunities and choices for them.
As a central nonprofit agency for the AbilityOne Program, SourceAmerica is one of the largest sources of employment for people with significant disabilities. Employees working on AbilityOne contracts perform a variety of roles, such as grounds maintenance, clerical work, customer service, secure document destruction, electronics recycling, seasonal staffing, kitting and packaging, food services and more.
The videos and stories below depict the ways which inclusion drives innovation throughout SourceAmerica.
