National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)

 Find tips and resources to plan for and celebrate NDEAM.

NDEAM is held every October to honor the many contributions people with disabilities make to America’s workplaces and economy and to showcase inclusive workplace policies that benefit both employers and employees.

Each year, a theme is selected by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) to help employers, disability advocates, and others plan their observances. The NDEAM theme for 2023 is “Advancing Access and Equity.” 

Visit ODEP's website to learn more about NDEAM and find ideas for how your organization can celebrate. You can also download the NDEAM poster in English and Spanish. For the first time, organizations can now customize the NDEAM poster with their name, logo, and photos.
