Excellence in Disability Inclusion Award Comments Requested

The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs and the Office of Disability Employment Policy are joining efforts to recognize excellence in contractor compliance practices. The Excellence in Disability Inclusion Award will highlight the successful practices and strategies of contractors that have expanded and improved recruitment, hiring, retention and promotion opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Members who create an inclusive culture by removing barriers and improving the work experience for the disabled are encouraged to submit comments on the new programs by Dec. 4, 2018. Stay tuned for more information on applying for the award.
