The LEAD Center's Online Dialogues
The LEAD Center’s work focuses on promoting innovation in policy, employment and economic advancement to advance individual and systems level change for all people with disabilities. The LEAD Center provides policy research and recommendations, training and technical assistance as well as demonstration projects designed to break down silos in existing systems, processes and practices, and foster wider understanding, adoption and integration of next-generation employment practices in both the public and private sector. As part of this effort, the LEAD Center is hosting a series of online dialogues to gather input and ideas from the public and other stakeholders including subject matter experts. Ideas and comments gathered from these online dialogues will be used to guide LEAD Center's work to advance innovative employment outcomes and greater financial stability for Americans with disabilities.
Check out the LEAD Center's Promoting Inclusive Career Pathways Online Dialogue, which sought to gather ideas and insights on how to improve the effectiveness of Inclusive Career Pathways programs to provide career support for people whose options may be otherwise limited.
