LEAD Center Webinar Recording - "WIOA From a Disability Perspective: An Overview - Part 1 of 4"

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On March 05, 2015 (EST)

Signed into law by President Obama last July, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) maintains a primary focus on assisting job seekers and workers with and without disabilities to succeed in the labor market and matching employers with skilled workers who may benefit from education, skills training, and career services. At a state and local level, Workforce Investment Boards (WIBs) must engage in a unified strategic planning process that will enhance their focus on cross system collaboration (Title I Adult and Youth programs and services with Wagner-Peyser Employment Services and Title I of the Rehabilitation Act programs).

This was the first of a four-part webinar series provided by the LEAD Center which is funded by the Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy.
