NYSID Joins in Recognizing October as 'National Disability Employment Awareness Month'

National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) allows New Yorkers to both recognize the incredible contributions individuals with disabilities make to New York State, and to focus public awareness around the ongoing employment challenges faced by people with disabilities.

"New York State has made important strides in creating employment opportunities for people with disabilities," states Ron Romano, NYSID President and CEO. "The work NYSID member agencies and partners are doing to remove barriers facing individuals with disabilities as they pursue meaningful work and careers is helping improve our state's economy and strengthen our communities. We support our members' recognition of NDEAM throughout this month, centering on the employment achievements of New Yorkers with disabilities."
