ODEP Announces 2022 NDEAM Theme – Disability: Part of the Equity Equation

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy has announced that this year’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) theme will be Disability: Part of the Equity Equation. “A strong workforce is the sum of many parts, and disability has always been a key part of the equation,” said Assistant Secretary for Disability Employment Policy Taryn M. Williams. “People with disabilities make up a wonderfully multifaceted group. By recognizing the full complexion of our community, we can ensure our efforts to achieve disability inclusion are, in fact, truly inclusive.” Held every October, NDEAM is a fitting time to educate about disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities. More information on NDEAM 2022, including the official poster, will be released in coming weeks. Find tools and ideas for celebrating NDEAM.
