Joint Base San Antonio recognizes National Disability Employment Awareness Month

By Maria F. Rodriguez Affirmative Employment Program Manager

National Disability Employment Awareness Month, or NDEAM, runs from Oct. 1-31 and this year’s theme is “America’s Recovery: Powered by Inclusion.”

The purpose of National Disability Employment Awareness Month is to educate people about disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of America's workers with disabilities. Held annually, NDEAM is led by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy.

“Our national recovery from the pandemic cannot be completed without the inclusion of all Americans, in particular people with disabilities,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh. “Their contributions have historically been vital to our nation’s success, and are more important today than ever. We must build an economy that fully includes the talent and drive of those with disabilities.”

In observance of NDEAM, Joint Base San Antonio will have Reasonable Accommodation and Schedule A Hiring Authority Training for Air Force civilian personnel as well as NDEAM poster displays throughout JBSA.

The Schedule A Hiring Authority & Reasonable Accommodation training for Air Force personnel will be held Oct. 27 via Meet Me Conference at 210-466-4667 or DSN 450-4667 from 9:30-11 a.m.

There will be NDEAM poster displays at commissaries across JBSA, in libraries at JBSA-Lackland and JBSA-Randolph, as well as at the CAC/ID office at building 4023 at JBSA-Fort Sam Houston.

Visitors are encouraged to follow COVID-19 health and safety measures, including practicing physical distancing.
