Advancing WIOA for Individuals Facing Barriers to Employment: Perspectives on State & Local Planning
Millions of Americans face chronic unemployment, even when the economy is strong. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) gives communities the opportunity to change that—but doing so takes deliberate effort.
This webinar will lift up the work of advocacy organizations, philanthropic institutions, and community-based service providers who are working to ensure that WIOA state and local planning takes into account the workforce needs and interests of individuals facing barriers to employment. The call will also highlight aspects of our WIOA Planning & Implementation Toolkit.
The webinar will cover:
How organizations are leveraging WIOA state and local planning to serve youth and adults facing barriers to employment.
What organizations are doing to participate in local/state WIOA planning processes and what they’ve learned.
Recommendations for how you can engage in the state and local planning process to ensure that jobseekers facing barriers to employment are accounted for and supported.
