October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) #RightTalentRightNow

In celebration of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) 2019, the Campaign for Disability Employment (CDE) is delighted to be hosting our latest photo-sharing campaign to promote this year’s theme, “The Right Talent, Right Now.” We’re inviting people with disabilities and other friends of the CDE to participate by sharing photos on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram illustrating “The Right Talent, Right Now” at work.
There are lots of ways to join in! To participate on Facebook, people can change their profile photo to a picture for the campaign, and then add our customized photo frame. Or, they can print and hold one of our #RightTalentRightNow signs in a photo (or make their own sign!) and post it to their feeds on all three platforms. Will you help us spread the word to your organization’s networks? Together, we can illustrate the many talents of people with disabilities—all across social media and in workplaces far and wide. 
Below are sample social media posts and a news brief for your consideration:
