National Disability Employment Awareness Month Virtual Event

Monday, December 21, 2020

In honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the Iowa Developmental Disabilities Council and Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services facilitated a virtual webinar event called “Increasing Access and Opportunity: NDEAM” via Zoom on November 10, 2020. We were joined by the individuals we showcased all month long through videoed interviews for an interactive discussion on their lives, successes and various roles they’ve played in the workforce as individuals with disabilities. As we wrap up National Disability Employment Awareness Month, the Iowa Developmental Disabilities Council and Iowa Vocational Rehabilitation Services are still celebrating the various individuals with disabilities and their roles in the workforce. 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. Join us in celebrating the individuals highlighted throughout our campaign.
