2014 LEAD Center Webinar Topics Announced

December 23, 2013

In 2013, the LEAD Center provided a nine-part monthly webinar series on Promoting Employment, Promoting Economic Advancement and Promoting Leadership/Public Policy to nearly 2,700 individuals, workforce development professionals and policy makers. In 2014, the LEAD Center will continue to provide webinar training on emerging best practices, employment and economic advancement innovations and public policy developments and implications through a new nine-part monthly series designed and delivered by national experts.

The 2014 LEAD Center monthly webinars will be provided through three mini-series focused on economic advancement, leadership/public policy and employment.  The Economic Advancement mini-series will provide information and training on the link between economic advancement and employment, including tax assistance supports for workers, emerging best practices in integrating financial capability strategies within publicly funded employment services and identifying economic advancement goals during the Discovery process.

The Leadership/Public Policy mini-series will take a deeper look at Section 188 of the Workforce Investment Act as a tool for implementing promising practices regarding equal opportunities, and the impact of Medicaid Managed Care and health care transition on the employment of individuals with disabilities.

Finally, the Employment mini-series will share findings from the LEAD Center’s inaugural year pilot employment project with select Centers for Independent Living (CILs) and the power of strategic partnerships to secure better employment outcomes, advanced training on customized employment strategies and lessons learned from employers providing flexible work arrangements to improve the productivity and retention of employees with and without disabilities.
