LEAD Center Launches Redesigned Website
The LEAD Center website, leadcenter.org, recently underwent a redesign that reorganized its many resources and enhanced the site’s search functions. Resources are organized across four categories: WIOA/workforce development, customized employment, financial literacy and capability, and cross-system collaboration.
Visitors to the site can find a wealth of helpful resources about WIOA from a disability perspective, customized employment, Employment First, policy updates, financial education, and more. A new advanced search function allows for quick and easy access to any and all site content in multiple ways. The advanced search tool also directly integrates related search results from the robust Employment First website, dol.gov/odep/topics/employmentfirst.htm.
Led by National Disability Institute with funding from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), the LEAD Center - known formally as the National Center on Leadership for the Employment and Economic Advancement of People with Disabilities (LEAD) - brings together a range of organizations, thought leaders and best-practice innovators to expand policy, employment, leadership and economic advancement opportunities and outcomes for all people with disabilities.
