ODEP Celebrates 20th Anniversary
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), which funds the CDE, is celebrating “20 Years of Driving Change and Creating Opportunity” throughout 2021. Visit ODEP’s website to learn about its history, its authorizing legislation, and its many accomplishments and initiatives since its establishment. The site also hosts the “Driving Change, Creating Opportunity” blog series, a yearlong look at ODEP’s first two decades and how those years will inform the future. Officially established in 2001, ODEP is the only non-regulatory federal agency that promotes policies and coordinates with employers and all levels of government to increase workplace success for people with disabilities.
