2020 Diversity, Inclusion and Disability Awareness Calendar


Save the date - 2019 Disability Inclusion Awareness Calendar

Creating diverse and inclusive workplaces for people with disabilities allows us to recognize and support organizations that help bring awareness to a wide variety of annual health, disability awareness and inclusion campaigns.

As a result, to help guide community organizations providing services to people with disabilities and the employers hiring those individuals, Disability Solutions has assembled a list of annual days and months for the 2020 calendar year that promotes awareness and inclusion for the disability community.
