Inclusive Career Pathways Desktop Guide: Information and Resources to Support Inclusive Programs and Services


Inclusive Career Pathways Desktop Guide: Information and Resources to Support Inclusive Programs and Services Newsletter


December 10, 2018

The LEAD Center’s Policy Update – Our policy update focuses on the intersection of disability, employment and health care policy and provides policymakers, disability service professionals, individuals with disabilities and their families with information about relevant policy developments regarding WIOA, Medicaid, the Affordable Care Act and related topics, with a focus on improving employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities.

Inclusive career pathways are programs and approaches designed to support people whose career options have been limited because they lack the academic and/or technical skills necessary to complete the credentialing requirements of many key high-demand and high-growth career opportunities.

Use this Inclusive Career Pathways Desktop Guide to locate the information and resources you need to support inclusive practices within the programs and services you are providing as part of your career pathways. Specifically, this Desktop Guide will lead you to information that covers five key topics:

  1. Partnerships
  2. Job accommodations
  3. Strategies for job development
  4. Resource coordination
  5. Employer engagement

In addition to critical information, this Desktop Guide will connect you to organizations from within the public workforce system, the disability community, national organizations, and federal offices. Each entity plays a role in helping career pathways programs to think broadly about inclusion and connect to the tools, training, and technical assistance they need to be as inclusive as possible.
