LEAD Presents at 2015 NAWDP Conference
Earlier this month, LEAD Center Assistant Project Director, Elizabeth Jennings, presented at the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals’ (NAWDP) 2015 Annual Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. Held May 4 through May 6, LEAD Center was invited to lead two workshops on improving employment opportunities and services for people with disabilities.
The first session, Successfully Serving Job Seekers with Disabilities: the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) from a Disability Perspective, covered WIOA provisions related to serving youth and adults with disabilities within the workforce development and vocational rehabilitation (VR) systems. The second session, Opening Doors: Creating an Accessible Welcoming Environment for Jobs Seekers with Disabilities, equipped participants with best practices and strategies to better serve job seekers with disabilities.
