Every October 1st, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) kicks off National Disability Employment Awareness Month, or NDEAM. This month is meant to educate the masses about the employment issues that the disabled population faces, as well as to celebrate all of the many and varied contributions of America’s disabled workforce. This may be a nationally led celebration, but the Campaign for Disability Employment (CDE) hopes that organizations and industries at the grassroots level join in as well. The NDEAM theme for 2019 is “The Right Talent, Right Now.” To participate in this year’s theme, the CDE is hosting a photo-sharing campaign that’ll invite those with disabilities to share their photos to their preferred social media platform by using the hashtag #RightTalentRightNow.
