Beatty Highlights Importance of National Disability Employment Awareness Month

Every October our nation celebrates National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) to reflect on the important role Americans with disabilities have in the workplace and on the economy. To mark the month-long occasion, U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) said:

“Americans with disabilities are using their skills and talents to make a huge difference in and outside the workplace. However, we need to ensure that all workers with and without disabilities have equal opportunity to bring their whole self to the job. This October, I call on my constituents to join me in advocating for greater diversity—and urge all Americans to look past perceived ‘disabilities.’”

For more than 70 years, our nation has recognized NDEAM. To learn more, please visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s website, and do not forget to join the conversation online by using #NDEAM.
