2021 Disability Employment Awareness Month Sponsorship Opportunities

Updated: Aug 30



Disability Employment Awareness Month is part of a national initiative highlighting career paths and industries for students and job seekers with disabilities. We provide tools and resources for businesses to support their efforts in employing persons with disabilities, and we create awareness of and advocate for this under-utilized talent pool.


Goals

  • Provide persons with disabilities (PWD) the opportunity to explore the daily life of their career interest from a current employer.

  • Provide businesses and organizations the opportunity to interact with PWD from an employer/employee viewpoint in a time-controlled setting.

  • Introduce businesses and organizations to the capabilities and profitabilities of this loyal labor market.

  • Introduce businesses and organizations to the concept of hiring PWD for internships, full or part-time employment.


Who should be involved?

  • Individuals interested in participating or supporting DEAM activities,

  • Businesses who are interested in hosting job shadowers, internships, or providing mentorships,

  • Organizations interested in sponsorship opportunities.
