Nominations Open for Disability Employment Awareness Awards

In October, NIH will observe National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This year’s theme is “Accessibility Now and Always.” In preparation for the observance of NDEAM at NIH, the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion is seeking nominees for the 3rd annual Cultivating Inclusion: Honoring NIH Champions and Allies of Disability Award ceremony. 

Nominees should be individuals who, throughout their NIH career, have made exceptional strides toward the advancement of people with disabilities in our community or that help make NIH a more accessible environment for individuals who have a disability. The award is open to all NIH federal employees and fellows, past or present. 

To nominate an individual or group for an award, submit your nomination at by Friday, Aug. 13. 

NDEAM was established in 1988 by Congress to educate the American public about disability employment and the varied contributions of American workers with disabilities.
