Welcome to the Promoting Inclusive Career Pathways Online Dialogue
Thank you for your participation. This dialogue is now closed. For information about this event, please contact ePolicyWorks@dol.gov.
The LEAD Center is currently developing strategies and practices to promote the full inclusion of people with disabilities, and others who face barriers to employment, in inclusive career pathways initiatives.
Inclusive Career Pathways are programs and approaches designed to support people whose career options have been limited because they lack the academic and/or technical skills necessary to complete the credentialing requirements of many key high-demand high-growth career opportunities. Inclusive approaches bring together employers in key industries with community colleges, disability partners, government agencies, community partners, and social service agencies to develop and implement strategies for overcoming the workforce barriers faced by people with disabilities, returning citizens, people without a high school diploma and/or little-to-no post-secondary education, English language learners, and others who might require additional support.
The goal of this National Dialogue is to give you the opportunity to inform the LEAD Center’s work. Start by considering the following question and sharing your successes and experiences with career pathways initiatives, as well as, your ideas and thoughts on how they can be structured to best address the needs of people with disabilities. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
Ideas that can support access to career pathways are organized into the following topics:
