You have arrived at the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) website. At ODEP, our mission is to develop and influence policies that increase the number and quality of employment opportunities for people with disabilities.

This is a goal we share with our Alliance partner the Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers Society (PBATS), which works to promote disability inclusion—both on and off the field—through a variety of initiatives, including Ability Transcends Challenges and raising awareness about the importance of mental health support in the workplace.

In this spirit, ODEP and PBATS have collaborated to develop a series of video public service announcements (PSAs) featuring former MLB players with disabilities and various professional athletic trainers from clubs around the country.
