As we celebrate National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) this October, we acknowledge how hard this pandemic has been on all of us, especially people with disabilities. The road to full economic recovery must include a workplace in which Americans with disabilities are not only included but also accommodated and supported.

Just this year, AT&T was named a Leading Disability Employer by the National Organization on Disability, a testament to our commitment to providing opportunities for the professional advancement of our employees. We’ll continue working to ensure a workplace that fosters dignity and respect for the community, while our work advocates for equal rights for all. We thank all of our AT&T colleagues with disabilities for being an essential part of our team! For more information on AT&T’s efforts, check out our DE&I page.
