Join our recruitment team to learn more about the Department’s opportunities for individuals with disabilities and how our organization supports them. We encourage you to join the NDEAM Facebook Live where we will feature Foreign Service and Civil Service professionals with disabilities, who will share how they contribute their unique skills and experiences to advancing U.S. diplomacy.
The 30-minute session will include:
- Opening remarks from Ambassador Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley, the Department’s first Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer
- Panel discussion with two Department employees with disabilities. The panelists will discuss their experiences with the Department as individuals with disabilities, and how their disabilities have shaped and influenced their careers.
- Chat room with subject-matter experts who will share useful information on accommodations, accessibility, equity, and special hiring authorities for individuals with disabilities.
National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is held each October to celebrate the many and varied contributions of individuals with disabilities to the nation’s workplaces and economy.
