ePolicyWorks Online Dialogue Communities

Funded by the U.S. Department of Labor's (USDOL) Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), the State Exchange on Employment & Disability (SEED) helps state and local governments develop and implement meaningful policies and best practices that lead to increased employment opportunities for people with disabilities, and a stronger, more inclusive workforce and economy. To further engage stakeholders, build relationships, and inform USDOL policymaking efforts, SEED leverages its ePolicyWorks online dialogues.

Effecting Policy Change Through Crowdsourcing: ePolicyWorks National Online Dialogues

The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) is pleased to host an important series of online dialogues to engage stakeholders in the policymaking process. Brought to you through the use of leading-edge crowdsourcing tools, these online dialogues are interactive platforms of collaboration. They enable ODEP to work with their partners to enlist the public's input on key policy issues related to the employment of people with disabilities by channeling the brainpower of our federal partners, nonprofits, NGOs and other stakeholders.

Now, it's your turn to join the conversation. At ODEP, we rely on the insights and ideas of people like you to deeply understand the challenges faced by people with disabilities across the country. More importantly, your voice helps ODEP and our partners identify solutions, create policy and effect change that positively impacts the employment of people with disabilities.
