Advancing Access and Equity this NDEAM
This month is National Disability Employment Month Awareness Month (NDEAM), and we are celebrating and advocating for the disability community all month long. Keep an eye out for REDi Chats, blogs, awareness campaigns, and more as we work toward cultivating an inclusive global workforce for all. The Rangam team will be reaching out to policymakers to advocate for disability inclusion in the workplace and share our expertise in accelerating meaningful employment for everyone.
Shaping a More Inclusive and Equitable Future
Rangam is proud to announce the launch of our global outreach campaign, a dedicated effort to engage with policy makers worldwide in our pursuit of promoting diversity, inclusion, and equitable employment opportunities. At Rangam, we firmly believe that policy is a powerful instrument for driving meaningful change, particularly in the lives of individuals with disabilities within the workforce. As we conclude National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) in October, our campaign took inspiration from this year's theme, "Advancing Access and Equity," which perfectly aligns with our core values and mission.
Our campaign is driven by our recent advocacy on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C., where we passionately championed the rights of people with disabilities in the workplace. Leveraging our extensive experience, we have identified key areas where policy changes can create a significant impact:
- Rangam advocates for policies that encourage employers to adopt inclusive hiring practices, ensuring equal employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.
- We believe in policies that promote workplace accessibility, removing barriers and fostering a more accommodating environment for employees with disabilities.
- Rangam supports policies that facilitate education and training programs designed to equip individuals with disabilities with the skills they need to thrive in the workforce.
- We believe in strengthening anti-discrimination laws is pivotal to protect individuals with disabilities against unfair treatment.
- Rangam encourages policies that provide incentives and resources to employers actively engaging in disability-inclusive hiring practices.
Through this outreach campaign, we are eager to initiate a constructive dialogue with policy makers and their teams, seeking collaborative opportunities to shape policies that advance access and equity for individuals with disabilities in the workforce. Rangam brings a wealth of experience and expertise to this endeavor, ready to share insights and collaborate on innovative solutions.
