NDEAM: Resources to Celebrate "My Disability is One Part of Who I Am" Theme

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On September 08, 2015 (EST)

Held each October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is 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."

A "Who I Am" Toolkit and other resources are available online that features a range of integrated materials to help you or your organization support the message of the “Who I Am” PSA. The discussion guide can be used to facilitate staff training and education efforts around the issues of disability employment and workforce diversity. The posters can be used to create workplace diversity displays or freshen up bulletin boards, waiting areas and break rooms. A Spanish-language poster is also available, as is a Spanish-language version of the PSA.
