October marks Disability Employment Awareness Month, a federally recognized designation that recognizes the employment issues faced by persons with disabilities. The U.S. Labor Department’s Office of Disability Employment Policy’s official theme for this year is “A Strong Workforce is an Inclusive Workforce: What Can YOU Do?” — a theme that promotes workforce diversity and inclusion of workers with disabilities, who represent a highly skilled talent pool.
With one in three Service-Connected Disabled Veterans working in the public sector, as of August 2011, the VA is taking continued action to implement strategies for hiring, promoting, and integrating individuals with disabilities into the VA workforce.
