Axiom Congratulates Dinah Cohen on Service to America Medal
September 21, 2007
Falls Church, Virginia. The men and women of Axiom Resource Management, Inc., are extremely proud to congratulate Ms. Dinah F.B. Cohen on winning a 2007 Service to America Medal. The award, sponsored by the Partnership for Public Service, was announced at a black tie gala this week in Washington, D.C.
The Service to America Medals, better known as "Sammies," recognize outstanding members of the federal workforce whose innovative and dedicated efforts resulted in significant contributions addressing national needs. There are nine medals under the Sammie program, and Ms. Cohen, Director of the Department of Defense Computer/Electronics Accommodations Program (CAP), received the Citizen Services Medal. She was recognized for making a significant contribution to the nation in activities related to social services. Specifically, the award recognized her outstanding work in providing assistive technology to federal workers with disabilities, and for her ground-breaking work in support of wounded Service members.
An Axiom team of assistive technology experts and disability services professionals has provided support to CAP, and to the CAP Director, Ms. Cohen, since 1991. Since its inception, CAP has filled more than 61,000 requests for accommodations. In addition to serving military departments and defense agencies, CAP partners with 65 other federal agencies, including the Departments of Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, and Veterans Affairs.
"We are thrilled to see this recognition of Ms. Cohen's visionary leadership," said Kevin Riley, Axiom partner. "And we are proud of the creative partnership we have built between our Axiom support team and the entire CAP staff."
"On behalf of every member of the Axiom CAP support team, I want to say how wonderful it is to see Ms. Cohen win a 'Sammie,'" said Derek Shields, Axiom's Vice President for Disability Management Services and CAP contract manager. "No one has worked harder, longer, or with greater enthusiasm to improve the working lives of federal employees with disabilities, and now, to help wounded Service members make the transition back to the workplace. She truly earned the Service to America Medal."
