During October, National Disability Institute (NDI) has joined with countless nonprofits, organizations, all levels of government, and individuals with disabilities, their family and friends to raise awareness about disability employment issues and to recognize the significant contributions of American workers with disabilities.
Here at NDI, we stand committed to ensuring Americans with disabilities have the opportunity to pursue meaningful, competitive and integrated employment options. Through the work of our LEAD Center, we are working tirelessly to advance individual and systems level change to improve employment and economic self-sufficiency outcomes for all people across the spectrum of disability.
Since our founding in 2005, NDI has been leading the charge to increase the financial capacity and capability of the entire disability community. As such, we understand and recognize the importance work has on an individual’s financial health.
In that spirit, we add our name to the chorus of organizations and people supporting National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) and this year's theme of "Expect. Employ. Empower."
