National Disability Employment Awareness Month
October is designated as National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). A national campaign that raises awareness about disability employment issues and celebrates the many and varied contributions of America's workers with disabilities. For this year’s event we will explore ways that destigmatize the thought that it’s “different” for everyone with a disability, and that not all disabilities are affected at all by stay at home more than we are all affected. We are honored to have as our guest speaker, Janet Fiore, President of The Sierra Group. Janet will have a conversation about accommodating and including those with disabilities who work from home during this pandemic and beyond.
