National Disability Employment Awareness Month: Advancing Access and Equity
October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), and all members of the Michigan Tech community are encouraged to participate. This year's theme, "Advancing Access and Equity," reflects the contributions of America’s workers with disabilities past and present, and showcases supportive, inclusive employment policies and practices that benefit employers and employees.
For specific ideas about how the Michigan Tech community can support National Disability Employment Awareness Month, visit the Office of Disability Employment Policy's webpage. Suggestions range from simple, such as putting up a poster, to comprehensive, such as hosting a disability education program for your department.
We all play an important part in fostering a more inclusive workplace, whether in-person or online, one where every person is recognized for their abilities — every day of every month.
