October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), and employers and employees across the Commonwealth are encouraged to participate.  The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, as the largest employer in the state, is endeavoring to build awareness and increase education about disability employment issues.  We also celebrate the many and varied contributions that employees with disabilities bring to our workforce.

Held annually, NDEAM is led by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy, and its spirit lies in the many observances held at the grassroots level across the nation every year.  For ideas on how to celebrate NDEAM, visit www.dol.gov/ndeam. Suggestions range from putting up a poster to implementing a disability education program.  Any effort can play a part in fostering a more inclusive workforce, one where every person is recognized for his or her abilities — every day of every month.
