During National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) this October, we’re taking time to recognize and honor the invaluable contributions of individuals with disabilities to our workforce and, most importantly, to our society as a whole alongside our Able@ Employee Resource Group.

This year’s theme of 'Advancing Access and Equity' underscores the essential role that people with disabilities play in shaping a diverse and inclusive workforce, one that mirrors the rich tapestry of American society. Just as we embrace diversity in all forms, NDEAM calls on us to eliminate any remaining barriers to employment and champion equal opportunities for all.

As we bring the proper attention to NDEAM, we’re kicking off the month of inclusive programming with a Q&A session with Samantha Hiew, the founder of ADHD Girls on neurodiversity, its impact in the workplace, and ways to support a neurodiverse workforce. 

From there, we’ll host a virtual painting party, hear from Jose Rosario, who will share his personal experiences navigating systemic inequality and stigma to contextualize the connection between identity and mental health, and we’ll have a session that aims to demystify benefits and accommodations for those with disabilities in the workforce. 

Our efforts don’t stop after October, as we’re always encouraging employees to engage in training around supporting workers with disabilities, psychological safety in the workplace, hiring and supporting neurodiversity in the workplace, and more. 

Creating a workplace where everyone feels welcomed, supported, and valued is one of the reasons we were recently recognized as one of America’s Greatest Workplaces 2023 by Newsweek.
