Unpacking the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act
National experts from leading organizations—including Rachel Zinn, Director, Workforce Data Quality Campaign—came together to unpack the recently introduced Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and what it means for the nation. Listen to the webinar recording or view the PowerPoint slides.
House and Senate leaders recently introduced WIOA, bipartisan, bicameral legislation reauthorizing the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) through 2020. The House and Senate are expected to pass this legislation in the coming weeks. Participants had a chance to ask questions and hear comprehensive analysis of the bill including: overview and Title I (occupational training); Title II (adult basic education); youth issues; and data and accountability provisions.
