Keynote Presentation – Joelle Brouner: The Heart of the Matter: Telling Our Story in the New World of WIOA
The landmark Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) changed the way vocational rehabilitation (VR) professionals serve people with disabilities. Joelle, Director of Community Access at the Colorado Division of Vocational Rehabilitation, explores the challenges, opportunities, and decisions related to the WIOA. Beneath the changing methods for gathering and reporting data is what really matters: the positive impact VR programs are having on people’s lives. Joelle shares the best ways to develop these compelling stories in the new world of the WIOA.
