When the pandemic created alternative work environments globally, employees with disabilities, especially those with invisible disabilities like mental health conditions, are now being more widely recognized and accommodated within the workforce.
National Disability Employment Awareness Month
"America is at its strongest when we harness the talents and celebrate the distinct gifts of all our people." WORLD shines a spotlight on National Disability Employment Awareness Month in October with stories celebrating the achievements of people with intellectual and physical disabilities. These women and men are succeeding at school and at work, and contributing to their communities and to the country's economy.
