National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)

Each October, ACCES-VR has the opportunity to celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) and celebrate the work of all their partners, who join together to make the connection between businesses seeking qualified workers and workers, who just happen to be individuals with abilities.   Based on the successes, ACCES-VR and their partners will be celebrating at multiple events across New York State.  These celebrations will emphasize local businesses investing in their local human resources and providing the opportunity for skilled workers to contribute to their communities, earn a living wage and have meaningful careers.

ACCES Assistant Commissioner Debora Brown-Johnson said, “Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) program plays a critical role in assisting people with disabilities gain integrated employment in their communities. It is ACCES-VR’s mission to do this work on a daily basis and together with our partners, we are good at it! ACCES-VR has what I would call “effective alliances” that bring businesses, our community partners and qualified women and men with disabilities together to get the job done!! Equal employment for all ensures a strong New York State economy and ultimately a stronger national economy.”

Please consider nominating employers!  This is a great opportunity to highlight the partnerships that are providing employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

Applications are due to Jennifer Geiger ( Jennifer.Geiger@NYSED.GOV ) by June 8th, 2018.
