Mission & Strategy
The National Organization on Disability (NOD) increases employment opportunities for Americans with disabilities. Our programs and services enable companies to realize the competitive advantages of hiring people with disabilities.
In 2022, the National Organization on Disability is celebrating its 40th anniversary. While America still has a long way to go, the disability rights landscape has changed dramatically and much has been accomplished since our founding in 1982. NOD is proud to have been at the center of this progress throughout our forty-year history and is committed to even greater advancements in the decades ahead.
