Sibling Leadership Network Honors National Disability Employment Awareness Month 2017

The 2017 NDEAM theme–Inclusion Drives Innovation–appears at the top of the poster in large blue, black and red letters on a light-blue background that depicts the lobes of the brain. Running through the center of the poster are threads of small innovation icons such as computer screens, transmission towers and lightbulbs. The icon threads frame a roadway that contains four images of people with disabilities offering solutions in inclusive work environments. Below the roadway are the words National Disability Employment Awareness Month followed by hashtag NDEAM. At the bottom is DOL's logo with the following words: OFFICE OF DISABILITY EMPLOYMENT POLICY, UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF LABOR and the URL to ODEP's website dol.gov/odep.

This October, the Sibling Leadership Network is honoring National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). According to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), “the purpose of National Disability Employment Awareness Month is to educate about disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of America’s workers with disabilities.”

The Sibling Leadership Network encourages employers in all industries to take part in NDEAM. Siblings can play a key role in supporting our brothers and sisters with disabilities to search and apply for jobs.
