Operationalizing Access and Equity in Your WIOA State Plan: Partnerships and Practices

Tuesday, December 12, 2023
3:00pm - 4:00pm ET

Every state and territory currently is writing their 2024-2028 Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) state plan, which is due on March 4, 2024.

This webinar provided critical information to better ensure that your state’s plan includes:

  • Meaningful, “strategic” partnerships to promote and operationalize collaboration, coordination, and communication.
  • Activities that ensure that all facets of the workforce system can successfully serve diverse, underserved populations, including people with disabilities.
  • Promising practices that promote Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) and nondiscrimination.
  • Actions to ensure that people with disabilities and other underrepresented populations are included in all aspects of your state’s WIOA Unified or Combined State Plan.
  • Ways to incorporate the Good Jobs Initiative and other “Investing in America” programs into your state plan so that they include people with disabilities.

This webinar was designed for people affiliated with state and local workforce development boards, American Job Centers, Vocational Rehabilitation, Adult Education programs, Career Pathways programs, community employment providers, developmental disabilities agencies, behavioral health agencies, people with disabilities, advocates, family members, youth transition programs, and more.
