National Disability Employment Awareness Month

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, a time dedicated to celebrating the contributions of workers with disabilities and promoting the importance of inclusive work cultures. Workforce Solutions for North Central Texas (WSNCT) proudly joins this national movement, reinforcing our commitment to fostering an inclusive workforce that values diversity, equal opportunity, and respect for all.

At WSNCT, we understand that disability is not an inability. Individuals with disabilities bring a unique perspective, resilience, and an array of talents to the workplace. They contribute significantly to our community and economy, and their potential should never be underestimated.

Together, let's celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month, not just in October but every day of the year. Let's build workplaces that truly value diversity and inclusion, because when we champion all abilities, our workplaces become richer and our communities stronger.

Resources for Employers

The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) provides valuable resources for disability-inclusive workplaces. Explore their site here.

For further support, visit AskEARN and AskJAN, two comprehensive resources that offer tools, guides, and advice on disability employment topics.

ODEP also offers an excellent toolkit titled “Building an Inclusive Workforce – 4 step Reference guide to Recruiting, Hiring, and Retaining Employees with Disabilities”. Access this insightful guide here.

In addition, WSNCT will be hosting a series of webinars throughout October designed to educate employers about creating inclusive workplaces. You can register for these webinars here.

Resources for Job Seekers

If you're a job seeker with a disability, we encourage you to explore the Vocational Rehabilitation Services offered by the Texas Workforce Commission. Find out more about these services here.
