Creating an Inclusive Workforce System: Implementing WIOA Section 188’s Equal Opportunity Provisions

Wednesday, January 20, 2016
3:00pm - 4:30pm ET

Section 188 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) prohibits discrimination against people who apply to, participate in, work for, or come into contact with programs and activities of the workforce development system. WIOA also requires that American Job Centers be fully accessible physically and programmatically, offering accommodations as needed and incorporating Universal Design wherever possible. LEAD Center has been working with the Missouri Division of Workforce Development, who have committed to improving access to their services statewide. Join this webinar to:

  • Hear from the leaders in U.S. Department of Labor’s Civil Rights Center, Employment and Training Administration and Office of Disability Employment Policy, who jointly issued Promising Practices in Achieving Universal Access and Equal Opportunity: A Section 188 Disability Reference Guide on July 6, 2015.
  • Learn about the commitment to Equal Opportunity in Missouri, and the work being done using the 188 Disability Reference Guide and based on information collected from surveying their American Job Center staff statewide, and surveying jobseekers and employers who use their services.

*Please note: This webinar will be captioned and a link to download the presentation will be sent to registrants prior to the webinar. To request any other reasonable accommodations, please contact Brittany Taylor at at least 48 hours prior to the webinar.
