The National Organization on Disability (NOD) is a private, non-profit organization that promotes the full participation and contributions of America’s 57 million people with disabilities in all aspects of life.
Today, the National Organization on Disability focuses on increasing employment opportunities for the 80-percent of working-age Americans with disabilities who are not employed. To achieve this goal, NOD works with leading employers and partners with educational and philanthropic institutions to pilot innovative approaches to disability inclusion, then scales these up into initiatives with even broader impact.
We are proud to have helped some of the world’s most recognized brands be more competitive by building or enriching their disability inclusion programs.
We envision a future where employers will be rewarded by the high productivity, retention rates, problem solving abilities and diversity of thinking that people with disabilities bring to the workforce – and where NOD is seen by corporate America, the media, decision makers in Washington and other disability organizations as a pre-eminent source of data, services and innovation for realizing that vision.
