National Organization on Disability
Founded in 1982, NOD is the oldest cross-disability organization in the country. For more than three decades, the National Organization on Disability (NOD) has been an innovator in disability issues, envisioning, creating and institutionalizing powerful new approaches to advancing the inclusion of America’s 56 million people with disabilities. To this day, we remain one of few organizations committed to representing all Americans with disabilities, regardless of their particular condition or circumstances.
Since 2010, NOD has collaborated with major corporations to develop new approaches to increasing employment of people with disabilities. With a highly-engaged board of senior corporate and civic leaders, and a staff with an exceptional depth of experience in disability employment and policy, NOD has proven itself to be a highly-effective provider of business-driven employment solutions and a leading voice in national disability employment policy.
With a vision of helping significant numbers of Americans with disabilities find meaningful, career building employment and helping employers know how to put their talents to use, NOD continues to produce creative, innovative and effective practices in disability employment and shares them with a broad audience to change public opinion. Our audience includes employers, service providers, government officials, policymakers and the media.
