Description of the Poster
On a green background (implying the color of money) in the upper left-hand corner are four words National Disability Employment Awareness. These words convey the purpose of creating the poster: to heighten public awareness about the skills and talents of workers with disabilities. Running left to right in the upper half of the poster is a bar graph with four bars running up into the theme PROFIT BY INVESTING IN WORKERS WITH DISABILITIES. A deep green bar separates the bar graph and 5 images of workers with disabilities below. Across the bar are white letters with the words: Return on investment means hiring the right talent. At the bottom of the poster is a second dark green bar with ODEP's web address (www.dol.gov/odep) in white letters. On the left side of the website at the end of the green bar is the Department of Labor's logo and ODEP's logo is to the far right of the web address.
The NDEAM Theme
Profit by Investing in Workers with Disabilities
The 2011 theme emphasizes the rich diversity and talent that workers with disabilities bring to the workplace.
The theme serves to inform the public that workers with disabilities contribute to the output of any organization. According to Kathy Martinez, assistant secretary of labor for disability employment policy, "Return on investment means hiring the right talent. Workers with disabilities represent all skill sets and are ready to get the job done."
