Presented by the Diversity Parnters Project at Cornell University
The Diversity Partners Project engaged in a two-year effort to uncover effective employer engagement practices for employment service professionals and organizations. This session shares information gathered by the Diversity Partners team that became the basis for web-based Frontline and Leadership Toolboxes. Individuals participating in the webinar will learn:
- What the literature tells us about effective employer engagement, and where evidence may be lacking.
- The results of more than 30 interviews about employer relationships, from professionals in community-based disability agencies, vocational rehabilitation, and workforce development in four states.
Employer perspectives on effective employer engagement; gleaned from in-person convening, surveys, and employers who served in an ongoing advisory capacity to the project.
