National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is an annual campaign that takes place each October. The purpose of NDEAM is to increase awareness about disability employment challenges and to celebrate the many and varied contributions of workers with disabilities. This year’s theme is “America’s Workforce: Empowering All.”
People with disabilities often face significant barriers to employment, resulting in lower rates of participation in the labor force and higher unemployment rates compared to non-disabled workers.
With a history spanning over 50-years, PRIDE Industries (PRIDE) is one of the largest employers of people with disabilities, nationwide. At PRIDE we focus on abilities rather than disabilities and our programs and services help individuals overcome obstacles to employment. Individuals from all walks of life come to PRIDE. We provide opportunities at all skill levels with a ladder of opportunity to help individuals achieve their definition of success and self-sufficiency.
Employment is essential to an individual’s sense of purpose, dignity, inclusion and economic growth, ultimately resulting in a happier life.
By partnering with PRIDE Industries, businesses can leverage its person-centered services including assessments, job skills development, training, placement, transportation, and on-going support to ensure long-term employment success. PRIDE places people in its business lines and provides support to individuals in community-based opportunities.
