This two-part DEI Grantee Learning Opportunity examines Career Pathways at the System and Program Level.


During this two-part series, the presenters provided an overview on Career Pathways and how Career Pathways and DEI strategies align at the “system level” and under WIOA. This included information on how DEI project leadership and partners can assess and organize their work on the DEI to achieve better alignment within the structure of Career Pathways and WIOA. In addition, they provided a breakdown on Career Pathways strategies at the “program evel”. This included information on how Career Pathways and DEI intervention strategies intersect with one another at the customer level and action items for DEI project staff and partners to engage in to capitalize upon that intersection to create inclusive programs and positive performance outcomes.

Part 2:
  • Explain career pathways (CP) strategies at the program (customer) level
  • Identify the similarities between DEI and CP program strategies
  • Prepare DEI partners for effective alignment with existing CP models
  • Organize DEI partners to develop and implement an action plan to increase the capacity of existing CP program to be more inclusive to individuals with multiple barriers to employment including individuals with disabilities
