Campaign for Disability Employment

The Campaign for Disability Employment is a collaborative effort between several disability and business organizations that seek to promote positive employment outcomes for people with disabilities by encouraging employers and others to recognize the value and talent they bring to the workplace as well as the dividend to be realized by fully including people with disabilities at work. People with disabilities can and do make important contributions to America’s businesses every day. By implementing good workplace practices, like maintaining a flexible and inclusive work environment, businesses can capitalize on the talents of qualified people with disabilities, benefitting everyone.

The Campaign is a collaborative effort between several organizations that are working to raise awareness and change attitudes about disability and employment, including:
  • American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD);
  • National Business and Disability Council (NBDC);
  • Job Accommodation Network (JAN)
  • National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC);
  • Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM);
  • Special Olympics (SO); and
  • U.S. Business Leadership Network (USBLN).
The Campaign is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP).
