ePolicyWorks is a Web-based approach to policymaking that engages citizens and stakeholders in new and innovative ways. The initiative leverages the latest technology to address barriers to employment for people with disabilities and fosters real-time collaboration and communication around key issues.
This online dialogue, hosted by the LEAD Center and ePolicyWorks, explored how ABLE accounts can be used to advance employment and financial self-sufficiency for youth and adults with disabilities. The dialogue was held from May 2 through 16, 2017.
Government agencies have a responsibility to ensure their social media efforts are accessible to all citizens, including people with disabilities. The ePolicyWorks team presented on social media accessibility best practices as part of the Section 508 Best Practices webinar series.
ePolicyWorks online dialogue events culminate in key input that stakeholders and policymakers can use to develop policy strategies and best practices. For example, the responses from our YouthACT Transition Truths National Online Dialogue will help policymakers and people who work with youth with disabilities to better understand what supports they need to become successful adults.
