The "Promising Practice Brief: Connecting with the business sector on the advantages of a diverse and inclusive workforce" has been released, January 2011. This Brief highlights how the Texas Disability Program Navigators (DPNs)are leading the charge to promote the inclusion of disability as part of diversity within the public workforce development system and in their local communities. As staff members of local Workforce Investment Boards and One-Stop Career Centers, Navigators are working to ensure that disability is embedded into diversity management training that is offered to local businesses, as well as included in diversity awareness provided to workforce development system staff and partners. This Promising Practice Brief highlights replicable and successful strategies for ways to: incorporate topics on diversity, including tapping into the potential market of the disability community, onto the agenda of employer roundtables, business luncheons, employer focus groups, and Business Service meetings within the One-Stop Career Centers; collaborate with the local chapters of the Chambers of Commerce, Human Resource associations, job fair organizers, and others in the business sector to integrate disability into a wide spectrum of statewide and local diversity initiatives. A Workforce3One webinar will be held on this Brief in April...stay tuned for details.
