October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, a time to celebrate the many and varied contributions of America's workers with disabilities. The theme for this year — which marks 70 years since the first observance — is "My Disability is One Part of Who I Am."
In honor of NDEAM, we'd like to re-introduce our blog, "Employment Spotlight." It feature success stories like Nakiea's (pictured), who has worked at Cincinnati Children's Hospital for more than a decade. We also highlight community employment successes from around the country, as well as provide tips and insights job seekers with disabilities and local businesses can use. Read our blog here.
We also have a page on our website dedicated to community employment, which you can view by clicking here.
