Launched in March 2016, #DSWORKS® is an NDSS employment initiative with three goals:
- To educate the general public about how individuals with Down syndrome are employable individuals and should be included in all aspects of the work force
- To encourage corporations and businesses to invest in hiring people with Down syndrome
- To increase the number of opportunities for individuals with Down syndrome to work in meaningful and competitive employment settings
This initiative includes advocating laws and policies that open employment opportunities to people with disabilities. For details about all aspects of this initiative, see the #DSWORKS® page.
