Recently, the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) launched a first of its kind employment campaign - #DSWORKS™ - at the National Press Club in Washington, DC with the help of Members of Congress, business leaders and stakeholders in the disability community.
NDSS' #DSWORKS™ is designed to educate the general public about how adults with Down syndrome are employable individuals and should be included in all aspects of the work force, to encourage corporations and businesses to invest in hiring people with Down syndrome and to increase the number of opportunities for individuals with Down syndrome to work in meaningful and competitive employment settings. As part of #DSWORKS™, NDSS also launched an employment survey that takes a deeper look into employment in the Down syndrome community nationwide. Involvement from employees 18 and older with Down syndrome is needed to make sure we have the most accurate information possible. Learn more about the initiative here.
