DLA Distribution honors National Disability Employment Awareness Month 2016 - #InclusionWorks

By DLA Distribution Public Affairs DLA Distribution Public Affairs

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, and all members of the DLA Distribution enterprise are encouraged to participate. 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.

Held annually, National Disability Employment Awareness Month is led by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy, but its true spirit lies in the many observances held at the grassroots level across the nation every year. Employers of all sizes and in all industries are encouraged to participate in NDEAM.

Reflecting the important role disability plays in workforce diversity, this year’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month theme is “#InclusionWorks.”
