Celebrating Disability Inclusion for More than 70 Years

Reflecting the important role disability plays in workforce diversity, this year’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) theme is “#InclusionWorks.” Observed each October, NDEAM celebrates the contributions of workers with disabilities and educates about the value of a diverse workforce inclusive of their skills and talents.

NDEAM dates back to 1945, when Congress declared the first week in October “National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week.” To learn more about the origins and evolution of NDEAM and other important events in disability employment history visit the Department of Labor interactive timeline.
