ECVC joins observation of National Disability Employment Awareness Month

Loading…

Monday, October 29, 2018

Eastern Carolina Vocational Center (ECVC) has announced its participation in National Disability Employment Awareness Month, an annual awareness campaign that takes place each October.

The purpose of National Disability Employment Awareness Month is to provide education on disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of America's workers with disabilities. This year's theme is “America’s Workforce: Empowering All.”

The history of National Disability Employment Awareness Month traces back to 1945, when Congress enacted a law declaring the first week in October each year "National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week." In 1962, the word "physically" was removed to acknowledge the employment needs and contributions of individuals with all types of disabilities.

In 1988, Congress expanded the week to a month and changed the name to National Disability Employment Awareness Month.

"Americans of all abilities must have access to good, safe jobs," U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta said. "Smart employers know that including different perspectives in problem-solving situations leads to better solutions. Hiring employees with diverse abilities strengthens their business, increases competition and drives innovation."

Reflecting this year's theme, throughout the month, ECVC will be engaging in a variety of activities to educate the public on disability employment issues and its commitment to an inclusive work culture. These efforts included its Annual Banquet held October 4 at Rock Springs with guest speaker Robert David Hall. Hall portrayed the “Quirky Coroner” on CSI for 15 years. He is one of the most well known actors with a disability working today. Von-Al Foster, Jr. a dining room cleaner at Five Guys (Greenville) was presented with the Employee Success Story of the Year Award.

"ECVC is proud to be a part of this year's National Disability Employment Awareness Month," said President/CEO Lisa Ward-Ross. “ We want to encourage businesses to take a closer look at hiring employees with disabilities, not just to be nice or charitable, but to find good talent matches for their open positions. It’s smart business that can positively impact the bottom line.”

Employers and employees in all industries can learn more about how to participate in National Disability Employment Awareness Month and ways they can promote its messages — during October and throughout the year — by visiting www.dol.gov/ndeam and www.ECVCinc.com .
