Disability Employment Awareness Month

Help Raise Awareness About Employment Issues For Disabled People

Every October, in Saskatchewan, Disability Employment Awareness Month (DEAM) is celebrated. During the month, individuals, employers, and other organizations seek to raise awareness of the many benefits of hiring those with disabilities. There are many benefits, including but not limited to individual, societal, and economic that come with diversifying the workplace.

Throughout October, many employers, those seeking jobs, and different organizations help those with disabilities transition into the workforce. The North Saskatchewan Independent Living Centre (NSILC) is involved with different supported employment initiatives, like employment counselling, resume building, and creating awareness among employers.

Make Your Workplace Accessible For All

DEAM is a great time to educate about different disability employment issues from accessibility problems to fostering a more inclusive workforce. There are many ways you can help, including:

  • Make a flyer or poster

  • Write an article to raise awareness

  • Spread the word on social media

  • Hold meetings about disability issues

  • Take advantage of Disability Mentoring Day

  • Create a disability education program

No matter how you choose to help out, as an individual or organization, you will be helping to create a more inclusive workforce. Happy DEAM!
