Kirk Adams is president and CEO of the American Foundation for the Blind.
For most of us, work is a big part of how we define ourselves and measure our value. For many people with disabilities, it’s also the key to independence.
That’s a point worth remembering in October, which is National Disability Employment Awareness Month.
It's National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)! Observed each October, NDEAM celebrates the contributions of workers with disabilities and educates about the value of a diverse workforce inclusive of everyone's skills and talents. This year’s theme is "#InclusionWorks."
This blog post is by guest blogger Ben Caro, a film editor, screenwriter, and director on a mission to change the perception of blindness in our society. Ben is directing Cathedrals, a short film starring an actor who is visually impaired. Read about his passion project and mission to advocate for employment opportunities for individuals with vision loss.
