An alliance agreement between the Office of Disability Employment Policy and the National Association of State Workforce Agencies will support their common goal of improving the workforce system for individuals with disabilities, including veterans. Assistant Secretary of Labor for Disability Employment Policy Kathy Martinez and NASWA President and Executive Director Mark Henry formalized the partnership at the NASWA Board of Directors meeting on July 17. The partnership will feature information sharing; training and professional development; and feedback on ODEP policies, programs, resources and outreach. "We appreciate the time NASWA has already invested in collaborating with both ODEP and LEAD, our national technical assistance center," said Martinez. "I look forward to working more closely with NASWA to advance the employment of people with disabilities."
