ideas for Community agencies

All community organizations in Manitoba are invited to join us in observing Disability Employment Awareness Month. After all, even if you don’t serve people with disabilities in particular, they are most likely well-represented in the target population that benefits from your services. By engaging in DEAM, you will be reinforcing your broader commitment to inclusion. While you will find some helpful ideas below, please also see the Ideas for Companies and Employers for ideas to strengthen disability inclusion in your own workplace.


Disability-related organizations, organizations that serve the interests of people with disabilities in particular, have an important role to play in promoting Disability Employment Awareness Month (DEAM). The ideas below are just a few ways you can get involved.

In any of the activities that you choose, strive to conduct them with the involvement of Employers in your community. Engage Employers who are already part of your network as a way to strengthen your partnership with them – and use DEAM as a tool to invite new Employers to learn about your programs, services, and the people you serve.
