October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)!
The Little Rock Workforce Development Board (LRWDB) joins the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) to encourage businesses and organizations across the country to participate.
Held annually, NDEAM educates about disability employment topics and celebrates the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities. Although national in scope, NDEAM’s true spirit lies in the many observances held at the grassroots level. Employers of all sizes and in all industries can take part.

Suggestions range from simple, such as putting up a poster (English | Spanish), to comprehensive, such as implementing a disability education program. Regardless, all play an important part in fostering a more accessible and equitable workforce, one where all people are recognized for their abilities—every day of every month.
