Martinez, Kathleen,
Assistant Secretary for Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP)

  • “It is heartening and encouraging to see the Federal Government working to become a model employer of people with disabilities. I encourage organizations in the private sector to do the same – to step up and be a model employer. Advancing employment opportunities for people with disabilities strengthens not only America's economy, but also its ideals. It creates a more inclusive America where every person is recognized for his or her accomplishments.”

  • “Advancing employment opportunities and expectations for people with disabilities strengthens not only America's economy, but our moral fiber. It creates a more inclusive America, one where every person is recognized for his or her accomplishments — and that should be our goal not just on Labor Day but every day.”
