National Disability Employment Awareness Month

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), a time to raise awareness about disability employment issues and to celebrate the important contributions made by Americans with disabilities. The NDEAM theme for 2016 is #InclusionWorks, which “seeks to inspire social media awareness of workers with disabilities.”
At the USPTO, nearly six percent of our employees currently self-identify as having a disability. While this is the highest number we’ve ever achieved in recent years, we must strive for more. Learn more from featured members of ResponsAbility, the USPTO’s affinity group for disability action and awareness.
