S.01, Ep.05: Oklahoma’s Five Star Rubric Promotes Accessibility in Workforce Development
Listen & Download
The need for accessibility doesn’t stop when learners transition into the workforce. In this episode, we continue our discussion of effective partnerships, this time with a focus on efforts to improve the timely delivery of high-quality accessible materials and technologies to job seekers with disabilities. Our guests from Oklahoma’s Able Tech and Department of Rehabilitation Services explain how they collaborated on a Five Star Rubric that will drive continuous improvement on accessibility for workforce development agencies in Oklahoma, and the lessons they learned from the process that can inform similar efforts in other states.
