2018 NDEAM Celebrates Empowering All

This year’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) will celebrate the theme of “America’s Workforce: Empowering All” which is represented on its poster above.

Observed each October, NDEAM celebrates the contributions of workers with disabilities and educates the public about the value of a diverse and inclusive workforce.

Although led by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy, many observances are held at the grassroots local level. Organizations of all types and sizes are encouraged to participate in some way each year.

NDEAM dates back to 1945, when Congress declared the first week in October “National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week.”

Through the decades it has evolved into a month long series of advocacy events held across the country.
