Reflecting a commitment to a robust and competitive American labor force, the 2019 National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) theme is "The Right Talent, Right Now." Observed each October, NDEAM celebrates the contributions of workers with disabilities and educates about the value of a workforce inclusive of their skills and talents.

Disability Mentoring Day (DMD) is a large-scale national effort to promote career development for students and job-seekers with disabilities through hands-on career exploration and ongoing mentoring relationships. DMD is officially launched the third Wednesday of NDEAM, with activities continuing all throughout the month.
