A Promising Practice may involve one significant step towards ensuring equal opportunity of job seekers with disabilities in the public workforce system, such as the purchase of adaptive technology or the development of reasonable accommodation procedures. Promising Practices may also evolve over time and require many steps or actions that lead to more meaningful employment opportunities of job seekers with disabilities, such as the coordination of an interagency committee that works together to solve ongoing employment challenges of job seekers with disabilities, or the development of a diversity/disability training curriculum for American Job Center staff. A Promising Practice may encompass one or more of the following key stakeholders:
Public Workforce System and/or American Job Center,
Mandated and non-mandated partners,
Other community and/or faith-based organizations, and the
Business sector (e.g. employers and business organizations)
Whether a successful strategy involves one major shift in policy, procedure, practice, relationship or attitude, or represents many steps in a ladder towards a significant change, all Promising Practices maximize the career advancement and self-sufficiency of job seekers with disabilities.
