National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) Map of the United States

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). NDEAM celebrates the many and varied contributions of people with disabilities to America’s workplaces and economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2020, the unemployment rate for people with disabilities was 12.6 percent. The Arc of Howard County has a program designed to help improve employment for people with disabilities. Our workforce development program helps people with intellectual & developmental disabilities reach their career goals.

The theme for NDEAM 2021, “America’s Recovery: Powered by Inclusion,” reflects the importance of ensuring that people with disabilities have full access to employment and community involvement during the national recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

NDEAM is held each October to commemorate the many and varied contributions of people with disabilities to America’s workplaces and economy. Browse our website for ideas and resources for employers, community organizations, state and local governments, advocacy groups and schools to participate in celebrating NDEAM through events and activities centered around the theme of “America’s Recovery: Powered by Inclusion.”
