LEAD Center Webinar on What Disability Advocates Need to Know about New WIOA Equal Opportunity Provisions
On February 28, 2017, the LEAD Center hosted a webinar on What Disability Advocates Need to Know about New WIOA Equal Opportunity Provisions. Participants heard directly from the Department of Labor’s Civil Rights Center and Office of Disability Employment Policy, and the State Equal Opportunity Officer for the Missouri Division of Workforce Development, as well as LEAD Center staff. Disability advocates and workforce staff gained knowledge on how to promote equal opportunity and inclusion of people with disabilities in workforce services.
This webinar provided comprehensive information on the recently issued Equal Opportunity (Section 188) Provisions, the relationship between Section 188 and other WIOA disability-related provisions, promising practices within the Promising Practice in Achieving Universal Access and Equal Opportunity: A Section 188 Disability Reference Guide, and state and local perspectives on improving access and equal opportunity for job seekers. The webinar and related materials are archived on the LEAD Center website.
