Fall 2018 is busy a time for PolicyWorks. On November 5, 2018, we participate in the Inaugural Symposium hosted by the Coehlo Center for Disability Law, Policy and Innovation at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. The following day, we present at the conference hosted by the Alliance for Arts and Culture followed by participation in meetings with the national Arts2Work project.
On October 30th, at the National Conference for the Council of State Administrators of Vocational Rehabilitation (CSAVR) in Long Beach, CA, the PolicyWorks team presented a panel of states piloting peer mentoring as vocational rehabilitation services. These states include Alaska, Florida, and Mississippi.
The Workforce Innovation Technical Assistance Center (WINTAC) provides training and technical assistance to State Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies (SVRAs) and related agencies and professionals to help them develop the skills and processes needed to meet Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requirements. In November 2018, we look forward to meetings with the WINTAC team in Washington D.C. for the Rehabilitation Services Administration.
