The U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy ePolicyWorks Online Dialogues
Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), ePolicyWorks is a web-based approach to policymaking that engages citizens and stakeholders in new and innovative ways. The initiative leverages the latest technology in crowdsourcing to address barriers to employment for people with disabilities through real-time collaboration and communication around key issues. It reflects a change in how stakeholders connect and collaborate with the Federal Government and each other, thereby increasing the efficiency of the policymaking process.
Since 2013, ePolicyWorks has hosted online dialogues to engage stakeholders and enable the government to gather the public's input on key policy issues related to the employment of people with disabilities. ePolicyWorks works to promote positive, lasting change through effective public policy and advance America's promise of equal employment opportunity for all citizens.
