National Disability Employment Awareness Month

25 Oct 2021 2:32 PM | Travis Oliver (Administrator)

October is National Disability Awareness Month and the theme for this year—through the US Department of Labor—is inclusion. We at the Mayor’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion are making an intentional effort to elevate important issues through personal connections. .

Last month, Amy Nieves, Executive Director of the Office for People with Disabilities,  wrote a post about highlighting her personal story in recognition of  National Recovery Month. These stories represent ways we can use personal experience to showcase our advocacy, as we work towards building an inclusive, equitable, and diverse Philadelphia.

If you or someone you know is struggling with navigating inclusion as a person with a disability, we encourage you to explore resources through the City’s  Office of People with Disabilities.
