National Disability Employment Awareness Month

October 2, 2023

Observed each October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) celebrates the contributions of America’s workers with disabilities past and present and showcases supportive, inclusive employment policies and practices that benefit employers and employees. The theme for NDEAM 2023 is “Advancing Access and Equity.”


Despite significant job gains over the past two years, many workers are facing higher levels of unemployment. As America’s economy continues to recover, inclusion is key to our success. Visit the U.S. Department of Labor website to learn more about this awareness month and how you can commemorate the many contributions of people with disabilities to America’s workplaces and economy.
