An Update from the Department of Labor regarding Section 14(c) Stakeholder Engagement Sessions
The Department has received significant interest in today’s public listening session, and we are grateful for the level of engagement from stakeholders. Because of the number of registrants, we are adding a third stakeholder engagement session. That said, we expect that we won’t be able to hear from everyone who may want to speak during the 90-minute session.
Accordingly, we encourage registrants to consider registering instead for one of the upcoming stakeholder engagement sessions listed below.
During these sessions, we are interested in hearing your input on the 14(c) program. The Department will not be sharing new information or announcements during these engagement sessions and the sessions are all equivalent.
Stakeholders interested in providing their input should sign up for the one that best suits their schedule. We request that stakeholders only speak at one session, and that organizations limit themselves to one speaker, to ensure that the Department is able to hear from as many participants as possible.
Additional stakeholder engagement sessions:
1.NEW:Stakeholder Engagement Session #2: November 01, 2023, from 2:00 to 3:30 PM ET. Members of the public wishing to participate must register in advance of the meeting by October 30.
2.Stakeholder Engagement Session #3: November 15, 2023, from 5:30 to 7:00 PM ET. Members of the public wishing to participate must register in advance of the meeting by November 1.
More information about these sessions will be available on the Office of Disability Employment Policy’s website.
We know that engagement in these sessions takes time and effort, and we are grateful for your input on this important topic.
