Held every October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) raises awareness by highlighting disability employment issues and celebrating the many contributions of workers with disabilities.
For NDEAM 2019, Lifeworks unveiled: Work|Life™, a traveling exhibit that raises awareness and challenges perceptions about employment experiences for people with disabilities.
1 in 4 adults in the United States have a disability.
In 2018, 80.9% of people with disabilities were not part of the workforce.
Through photographs, personal accounts, data, and design, Work|Life™ addresses the disproportionate rate of unemployment among people with disabilities by exposing barriers to inclusion and showing the value of a diverse workforce.
