From NCWD/Youth: “The following blog entry is a cross-post from Work in Progress, the official blog of theU.S. Department of Labor. The blog is written by Kathy Martinez, the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Disability Employment Policy (ODEP).
As another ODEP-led National Disability Employment Awareness Month draws to a close, I am heartened by all the fantastic ways individuals and organizations have worked to spread the spirit of this year’s theme, Because We Are EQUAL to the Task. This spirit was perhaps most evident on Disability Mentoring Day (DMD), which this year served as both the figurative and literal centerpiece of the month.”
