A Roadmap to Inclusive Career Pathways: Promoting DEIA through Cross-System Partnerships
People with disabilities benefit greatly from partnerships that pave the way to both careers and inclusion. The National Center on Leadership for the Employment and Economic Advancement of People with Disabilities (The LEAD Center) will host a webinar on February 2, 2023 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET which will highlight the Roadmap to Inclusive Career Pathways tool and how the District of Columbia has successfully broadened its reach into underserved communities. Panelists will share their strategies, experiences, and resources to support inclusive career pathways, create partnerships across government agencies and with underserved communities, and promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) to enable people with disabilities to succeed in the workforce.
In this webinar, participants will:
