    Northern Virginia Employers invited to submit for Commitment to Employment of Persons with Disabilities Awards

    Founded in 1962, The Arc of Northern Virginia is a local nonprofit that represents and serves individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD)—such as autism, Down syndrome, 
    cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and rare chromosomal disorders—of all ages and their families. They provide programs, services, resources, and advocacy that enable families to receive the services, 
    supports, and solutions they need to care for their loved ones with IDD during each stage of life, with a goal of full inclusion and meaningful participation.

    In recognition of October as National Disability Employment Awareness Month, The Arc of Northern Virginia is proud to present the “Commitment to Employment of Persons with Disabilities Awards” to 
    recognize companies in Northern Virginia that have demonstrated exceptional dedication to providing employment opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

    The Arc of Northern Virginia is grateful to all Northern Virginia-area companies that provide essential employment opportunities for people with IDD, and they invite individuals and companies 
    to nominate these important employers for this award. Nominees should employ people with intellectual or developmental disabilities in Fairfax County, Arlington County, City of Falls 
    Church or City of Alexandria.

    Self-nominations are encouraged. Nominations can be made by the employer, job coach or disability service provider, or parent/family of the employee with IDD. Nominations are due by July 
    19, and honorees will be announced on August 1. All nominees will be recognized at The Arc of Northern Virginia’s “Illuminating Inclusion” Gala on Saturday, November 9, 2024. (There is no 
    obligation to purchase a Gala ticket to be nominated).

    Nominations can be submitted online at: www.thearcofnova.org/employer-award
