Our ENABLE Employee Resource Group (ERG), is excited to host virtual events for National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM).
October 2020 carries special meaning for ENABLE members as this year marks not only the 75th observance of NDEAM, but also the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Both milestones are being commemorated with a range of events and activities centered on the theme, "Increasing Access and Opportunity."
The Department of Labor (DOL) spearheads NDEAM, with the goal of raising awareness of the talents of people with disabilities who are in the workplace, and ensuring everyone has access to jobs to support themselves and their families.
To celebrate the month, ENABLE will offer a diverse lineup of virtual events including the Beyond Disability panel discussion, motivational speaker Eric LeGrand’s talking about his journey with living with paralysis, guided meditation sessions, as well as participating with our NYL-VETS ERG in the Achilles cup competition.
