For employers, NDEAM is a perfect time to launch a disability Employee Resource Group (ERG) if one doesn't already exist. Sometimes referred to as Employee Networks or Affinity Groups, ERGs offer employees an opportunity to connect and receive support from others with similar backgrounds or interests. For more information, see A Toolkit for Establishing and Maintaining Successful Employee Resource Groups. If your company already has a disability ERG, consider using NDEAM to remind employees about it through displays, information tables or other communication channels. Find more resources for employers at the Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion.
