Each October UniqueSource celebrates National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This national event recognizes the contributions of America’s workers with disabilities, past and present, and showcases supportive, inclusive employment policies and practices that benefit employers and employees.

UniqueSource celebrates National Disability Employment Awareness Month by hosting an awareness event in the Pennsylvania State Capitol. We invite our Member employers to join us in demonstrating how they grow employment opportunities for Pennsylvanians with disabilities as part of our network of affirmative employers. We also participate in events held by other disability employment champions and work with both the PA House and Senate to pass resolutions designating October as Disability Employment Awareness Month.

The poster is rectangular in shape with a white background. The words, “Advancing Access & Equity, National Disability Employment Awareness Month, Celebrating 50 years of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973” are placed to the right of a field of red, gray, teal, blue and yellow arrows. Mixed within the arrows are diverse images of people with disabilities in workplace settings. Along the top in small gray letters are the hashtags “NDEAM” and “RehabAct50” followed by the website address, dol.gov/ODEP. In the lower right corner is the DOL seal followed by the words “Office of Disability Employment Policy, United States Department of Labor” as well as the Rehabilitation Act 50 logo and the UniqueSource logo.

The Office of Disability Employment under the U.S. Department of Labor develops a theme each year and provides a wide variety of resources. Recognizing the importance of ensuring all people have equal opportunity to contribute their skills and talents, the 2023 National Disability Employment Awareness Month (#NDEAM) theme is “Advancing Access and Equity."

 

The 2024 NDEAM theme is "Access to Good Jobs for All." Poster, graphics and additional information will be available soon.
