Mission Statement

A Catalyst for the Disability Employment Movement   The National Organization on Disability (NOD) is a private, non-profit organization that promotes the full participation of America’s 56 million people with disabilities in all aspects of life. Today, NOD focuses on increasing employment opportunities for the 79 percent of working-age Americans with disabilities who are not employed. With programs on the ground, NOD is demonstrating new employment practices and models of service delivery, evaluating results, and sharing successful approaches for widespread replication. We are conducting research on disability employment issues, including the field’s most widely used polls on employment trends and the quality of life for people with disabilities. And our subject matter experts in disability and employment provide consulting services to public agencies and employers seeking to harness the unique talents that people with disabilities can bring to the workforce. To achieve our goals, we work in partnership with employers, schools, the military, service providers, researchers, and disability advocates. Our current employment programs are benefiting high school students with disabilities transitioning into the workforce, seriously injured service members, employers seeking to become more disability friendly, and state governments engaged in policy reform.

Ms. Carol Glazer

Leadership Statement:

June 2012 Letter from National Organization on Disability President Carol Glazer   Friends, In 2010, as the country celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the ADA, many civil rights activists like myself couldn’t help but notice that the legislation, far reaching though it was, came a full quarter century after the Civil Rights Act of 1964, on which the ADA was modeled. How long it took for our country to take that essential and logical step! We also noted in a 2010 Harris survey, that unemployment rates for people with disabilities had changed little in the 24 years since Harris’s first poll for NOD. It’s true that we had much to celebrate, but the work ahead seemed daunting. Now, as I write this letter, I am struck by how different the landscape looks. We can increasingly build upon the work of the disability rights leaders who came before us. Their achievements—battles hard won in years gone by—are sticking. We’re also seeing new faces join the crusade. Employers recognizing the unique talents and resilience that people with disabilities bring to their workforce. And a vocational rehabilitation system that increasingly sees employers as its customer. Consider: -NOD’s Bridges to Business program, initiated in 2010 with pilot partnerships with Lowe’s and Sam’s Club/Walmart, has now worked with more than a dozen Fortune 500 companies. An independent evaluation of the program, conducted by the John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development, concluded that: “Of all the programs designed to place people with disabilities in employment that the Heldrich Center has evaluated to date, Bridges to Business demonstrated the greatest success in job placement.” -Our allies in the field are thriving and have much to be proud of. The US Business Leadership Network (USBLN®), is the single largest “grasstops” effort in our field—grassroots in its scale and structure, but with a constituency of corporate leaders who can wield considerable influence politically and in our economy. These leaders join their peers in NOD’s own CEO Council in their understanding of the bottom-line benefits of hiring people with disabilities, the returns of which go well beyond workforce performance. Independent research confirms that employees are proud to be part of a company that embraces equal rights for all, and that customers prefer buying from such companies.   -Individual business leaders are increasingly making big and very public moves to support equality for people with disabilities. Among these standouts: pioneer Randy Lewis, senior vice president of distribution for Walgreens, the nation’s largest drugstore chain. Eight years ago, Lewis set a 30 percent hiring goal for people with disabilities in the company’s distribution centers. Last year, Walgreens jumped that high hurdle, recently hiring the company’s 1,000th employee with a disability. Lewis’s actions have encouraged scores of other companies to follow in Walgreens’ footsteps.   -And earlier this year, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs at the US Department of Labor introduced a new proposed rule regarding hiring of people with disabilities. While the merits and the particulars of this proposal will—and indeed should—be debated, the salient point is that affirmative hiring standards for people with disabilities, much like those for women and racial and ethnic minorities, is on the table for the first time in history. Bob Dylan, observing the civil rights movement in the 1960s, wrote that, “the order is rapidly fading…the line it is drawn, the curse it is cast, the slow one now will later be fast.” The same message holds true today. The hard work in our field to close the employment gap for people with disabilities has gained new traction. Our labors are having a palpable effect on a larger scale than ever before. Carol Glazer   President, National Organization on Disability

Program Description:

Since 2001, more than 500,000 military personnel have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan with disabling conditions, many of them severe enough to be life-altering. These disabilities often demand a long and difficult period of recovery and adjustment — but they need not be a barrier to civilian employment, income, and independence. Too often, seriously wounded service members lack the training and resources to adapt their military experience and new disabilities to successful civilian careers. The waste of their talents and abilities, and its impact on thousands of military families, is a completely preventable national tragedy. In 2007, the US Army asked the National Organization on Disability to design a solution. The result is the Wounded Warrior Careers program, in which hundreds of the most severely injured veterans and their families have begun planning and preparing for careers, enrolling in school or training programs, taking jobs, and moving ahead. NOD has gone on to develop a scalable Career Transition model, report the results, and at the same time, help hundreds of veterans and their families successfully reintegrate into their communities

Program Description:

Bridges to Business is an ongoing initiative to help employers to effectively recruit, hire, train, and retain job-seekers with disabilities. The program also assists agencies that provide job training and placement services to jobseekers with disabilities work more effectively with businesses. Employers frequently report difficulty accessing candidates with disabilities, and service providers often lack an understanding of business’ labor force needs. As a result, 29 million working-aged Americans with disabilities lack employment or are underemployed. The Bridges to Business program leverages NOD’s connections to corporate America to help effectively employ those jobseekers with disabilities.

Program Description:

For decades, NOD’s Harris Surveys have been an authoritative resource on the status of people with disabilities in America. Since the 1980’s, NOD surveys have tracked numerous quality of life indicators for the disability community. The surveys help to quantify the challenges faced by the disability community, providing statistical data that can be used to understand specific issues facing people with disabilities, and to influence the decisions of policymakers. The surveys receive wide coverage in the press, and results are frequently cited by policymakers, and by the disability community.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

Our Mission The mission of the National Organization on Disability (NOD) is to expand the participation and contribution of America’s 56 million men, women, and children with disabilities in all aspects of life. Our current focus is on improving employment prospects for America’s 29 million working-aged Americans with disabilities.   Our Vision As employers increasingly place disability as a top diversity priority, persons with disabilities are actively recruited for a broad range of jobs and careers, and employers make reasonable accommodations to address their needs. Employers are rewarded by the skills, high productivity, and retention rates of workers with disabilities. In turn, persons with disabilities have positive financial incentives to work; are assured of continuing health benefits appropriate to their needs; are provided with the education and training to prepare them for productive careers; and enjoy the dignity, responsibility, and economic independence resulting from gainful employment.

Areas for Improvement

Experts have highlighted having limited funding as an issue for the National Organization on Disability. In order to fund their rapid growth, experts recommend hiring a full-time development officer to help the CEO.

Not Effective
This organization provides little to no direct services to individuals with disabilities. Nonprofit Senior Staff
They seem to have found their 'niche' with the hiring in 2006 of the current Executive Director. Their focus is on returning vets (is VA a partner?), HS students transitioning to work, and corporate placement of persons with disabilities. They do a poor job of disseminating specific, research based results of pilot projects. It is difficult to imagine the challenges in having staff spread all over the country. Now Kessler Foundation is partnering in their annual survey project. Their principal partners appear to be the military and corporations. I wonder how the recession is impacting job creation and placement for people with disabilities. The board seems too large to manage, with several 'figurehead' personalities. Are there any worker bees in the group? Overall, this organization seems to 'soft' to me. Nonprofit Senior Staff
This organization is one of the older, cross-disability organizations serving the disability community. Its approach is more academic and less grassroots than some of the other policy-oriented organizations serving the disability community. It does not seem to be as effective as some of the more grassroots organizations. Nonprofit Senior Staff
Fundraising
The National Organization on Disability needs help funding their fast growth. Foundation Professional
