    Alzheimers: Through My Mother's Eyes (with Suzette Brown)

    in Women

    Today I’m joined by Suzette Brown, author of “Alzheimers: Through my Mother’s Eyes”. We’re going to be talking about some of the major points from the book, which offers ideas, suggestions and plans of action for caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s.


    Her book is real, raw and truly reflects her day-to-day instances of her experiences - good and bad, up and down. She offers caregivers many insights, and examples, including her own viewpoints of what she "should" or "could" have done differently. The emotional and physical endeavors are challenging indeed - in addition to the stress, rage and frustration that are all part of the daily life of a caregiver. Join us to hear more.

    WIOA: Succeeding at Integrated Service Delivery

    in Jobs

    Thursday, March 19th  |  1:00 PM EDT


    Under WIOA, workforce boards are asked to focus on providing streamlined and efficient career center services. How can boards build a model of integrated service delivery that results not only in cost savings and elevated customer service? More importantly, how will changes in these areas contribute to improvement in outcomes and impacts?  Moving to a truly integrated system requires a willingness to look at all aspects of board and staff operations to identify where improvements would result in stronger partnerships.  As a service provider and operator of career centers nationwide, KRA Corporation has already examined current practices and identified areas where change is needed to take service delivery to the next level.  Join host Ron Painter as he interviews KRA Vice President Don Scott, and KRA Director of Workforce Innovation Felicia Flournoy, for a conversation about how best to succeed at connecting the activities of service delivery to the strategic priorities of a workforce board.  With examples of best practices from around the country, this is a can't-miss show in our Workforce Central Forum 2015 series.

    in Jobs

    Much has been said about smart decision-making in the development and implementation of national, state, and local public policy.  But what does that mean for workforce boards as they move towards WIOA implementation?  Scott Johnson, CEO of Social Solutions, says that WIOA creates the 'perfect storm' -- a time of significant change that delivers an opportunity for boards to rethink how they are managing performance and measuring outcomes.  You are invited to join host Ron Painter as he interviews Johnson how higher impacts can be achieved if boards 1) eliminate duplication of efforts, thereby conserving resources;  2) redirect efforts to activities that deliver measurable results; and 3) change the frequency and intensity of how we collect data and evidence. Don't miss this this discussion of how workforce organizations can take steps now to begin managing to outcomes in the new age of WIOA.

    WIOA: Preparing for Success


    Wednesday, February 25th   |  1:00 PM EST


    Workforce Boards are in many different stages of readiness when it comes to WIOA implementation. In NAWB's numerous conversations with the Department of Labor, we hear more and more that boards must not wait for the rulemaking to be completed to take steps to ready their operations and infrastructure for the requirements of the new Act.  The Training and Employment Guidance Letter 19-14 outlines a vision for the workforce system and initial implementation of WIOA, stating, "State and local workforce system leaders should take immediate action to achieve the vision of modernizing the workforce system and ensuring it operates as a comprehensive, integrated, and streamlined system that expands opportunities for all workers and businesses." But what should this immediate action be?


    Byron Zuidema is the Employment and Training Administration's Deputy Asst Secretary, and is responsible for driving all technical assistance activities around the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.  On Wednesday, February 25th, Byron will join NAWB CEO and host Ron Painter for a Workforce Central interview on the Department's plans for technical assistance and guidance as workforce boards begin initial steps towards implementation. In addition, Byron will share insights on the actions boards should take now to develop their vision for their communities and regions, engage community partners at a higher level, and make sure their board infrastructure and operations are set up for success.  Don't miss this highly actionable discussion!

    WIOA: Measuring Economic Impact


    Wednesday, March 4th  |  1:00 PM - 1:30 PM EST


    WIOA calls on workforce boards to track and report some new data elements including credentials attainment, measurable skills gain, training-related costs, and employer engagement. These figures each contribute to the economic impact a board has on its community and region. Boards are in various stages of readiness to track and meet these requirements.  How can your board position itself for better and more consistent data collection, decreased lag time for reporting, and measuring the 'intangibles' like work readiness in a more meaningful way?  Economic Modeling Specialists International (EMSI) turns labor market data into useful information that helps organizations understand the connection between economies, people, and work.  Join host Ron Painter and EMSI's consulting team for a discussion of best practices already in use by boards around the U.S. and a punch list of steps you can take now for improved measurement of your economic impact in the age of WIOA.
