Disability Employment Awareness Month

 

PIERRE, S.D. - Gov. Dennis Daugaard has proclaimed October Disability Employment Awareness Month (DEAM) in South Dakota.

 

DEAM aims to raise awareness about disability employment issues and to celebrate the contributions of workers with disabilities.

 

A host of South Dakota agencies and organizations will engage in activities during October to promote awareness of these issues and to help foster a disability-friendly culture in the workplace.

 

For more information on DEAM events within South Dakota, please visit http://dhs.sd.gov/rehabservices/ndeam.aspx.

 

This statewide observation coincides with National Disability Employment Awareness Month, a national awareness campaign that takes place each October.

 

The 2017 theme is “Inclusion Drives Innovation.”
