National Disability Employment Awareness Month
National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)
Disability: Part of the Equity Equation
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)! NDEAM aims to educate employers, employees with disabilities, and families about disability employment, and celebrate the many contributions of all workers with disabilities.
The Michigan Developmental Disabilities Council has created this web page to be a useful resource for employers, employees and families to learn more inclusive employment policies and practices.
This year’s theme is “Disability: Part of the Equity Equation.” To celebrate, the Michigan Developmental Disabilities Council will highlight stories of people with disabilities that have lived experience with competitive, integrated, and community-based employment.
