Director of the computer/electronic accommodations program

Defense Department

Cohen created DOD's first online service to provide needs assessments and assistive technology for disabled federal employees.

Cohen  developed the program to serve as a one-stop shop for those who need the services. It also serves wounded members of the military.

“Dinah is a caring, mission-focused leader and mentor, a true professional,” said Charles Campbell, chief information officer of the Military Health System. Her work allows disabled employees and military personnel to stay in, or in some cases, return to, the federal workforce, he said.

Cohen also received the President’s Quality Award from President George W. Bush for her work.
