The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) has presented a new challenge to workforce development professionals: affirmatively recruit and offer services to more job seekers with disabilities. This webinar will highlight information from the Diversity Partners online modules that can help workforce development professionals achieve greater inclusion of job seekers with disabilities.
As an employment services professional, building relationships with employers is a critical skill to help job seekers with disabilities find work. This relationship usually begins with a conversation about employer needs, and/or the qualifications of a job seeker to meet those needs. Join Diversity Partners faculty Kathleen Lee, and Rick Laferriere, Lead Manager of Workforce Initiatives at CVS Health, for an interactive presentation on the “dos” and “don’ts” of engaging with employers on behalf of job seekers with disabilities.
