Community of Practice Spotlight: Disability and Employment
This month, the WorkforceGPS Team would like to introduce you to the Disability and Employment Community of Practice (CoP), an online learning destination for public workforce system staff and partners, jobseekers, community-based organizations, grantees, and businesses that provide services and programs to people with disabilities and/or other challenges to employment.
The Disability and Employment CoP is your one-stop shop for practitioners to find and share high quality information about how to better provide integrated and accessible services and programs to people with disabilities and/or other challenges to employment. It offers opportunities to explore best practices; find specific information, training, and events to help you do your job better; ask questions and get answers from peers and experts; and share your own content or knowledge with others.

Also worth noting, October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). NDEAM celebrates the contributions of workers with disabilities and educates about the value of a workforce inclusive of their skills and talents. For more information and this year’s poster, click here.
