The Campaign for Disability Employment (CDE) is a collaborative effort to promote positive employment outcomes for people with disabilities by encouraging employers and others to recognize the value and talent they bring to the workplace. The CDE is the force behind three powerful PSAs that can be used to promote inclusion and opportunities for people with disabilities in the workplace:
- "Who I Am" showcases individuals who are not defined by their disabilities.
- "Because" pays tribute to the mentors and role models who inspire success for individuals with disabilities.
- "I Can" highlights what people with disabilities "can" do at work and the value that they bring.
Each PSA is accompanied by outreach materials supporting the What Can YOU Do? message and the secondary themes built around the PSAs. For more information, visit the CDE.
