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.

Under Carol’s leadership, NOD has developed important new relationships with the US Army, leading employers, national and local foundations, allied disability organizations and scores of new corporate donors to NOD’s programs. She put in place NOD’s signature employment demonstrations, Wounded Warrior Careers and Bridges to Business. For seven years prior to joining NOD, Carol was a program development and management consultant to foundations, universities, and nonprofit organizations working to improve conditions in inner-city communities.

?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Yes
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?
Response Not Provided

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.

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
