For more than 60 million disabled Americans, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is much more than just a law. It provides a vital source of opportunity and self-sufficiency, allows for increased economic participation, and serves as a powerful shield against discrimination in the workplace. National Disability Employment Awareness Month is a chance for us to celebrate workers with disabilities and recommit ourselves to dismantling barriers to access and inclusion in the workplace.
In Colorado, we have the Colorado Office of Employment First (COEF), which is Colorado toward equitable employment reaching all people with disabilities through –
- Systems Innovation
- Training Excellence
COEF is about changing perspectives on what it means to work, demystifying the process, promoting barrier-reducing policies and practices, highlighting innovative technologies, and helping employment providers implement the most effective strategies.
