Interested in presenting about #employment Innovations and Challenges in Career Development?

#PacRim2022 topic chair and strand lead Ronald Deese is seeking presentation proposal submissions at pacrim.coe.hawaii.edu.

---
📝TOPIC DESCRIPTION
Workforce development programs bridge the gap between jobseekers and employers. These efforts are undermined by challenges in training, transportation, disability benefits, and other areas. Each workforce development professional adds to the foundation of a new career with innovative strategies for promoting job readiness, hiring, job retention, career advancement, and entrepreneurship.

📝GUIDING QUESTIONS
→ What innovative strategies have been used to overcome barriers to employment for people with disabilities?
→ How can programs build strong relationships with employers?
→ What can we learn from workforce development programs in other states and countries?
→ How can the goals of workforce development move beyond job placement into supporting the development of a lifelong career?

📝RONDALD DEESE
Ronald has been a member of the @hireabilitieshawaii team at the UH Mānoa @CenterOnDisabilityStudies since 2012, supporting their efforts to improve employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities. He is currently the project director and community work incentives coordinator for the Hawai‘i WIPA project. This project provides free, individualized benefits counseling to jobseekers with social security disability benefits.

Smart Cities Built for Everyone 01/30/2017

Smart Cities Built for Everyone

These days, our cities are smarter than ever — but they’re still works in progress. With estimates suggesting that 15% of the world’s population live with disabilities (upwards of one billion people), redesigning our urban environments to be as welcoming as possible has never been more important.
That’s why I’m celebrating the innovations that are making Smart Cities more accessible. From clever apps and crowdsourced resources to revamped public transit and cultural programming, our urban spaces are best when they can be shared by all.
