Equity and Diversity Video Storytelling
The Equity and Diversity Videos Project results in the development of stories up to approximately 10 minutes maximum length, creating content which can be utilized in whole or part for provider social media, training, employer outreach, and other avenues of promoting employment and inclusion statewide.
Priority will be given to proposed stories which feature Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), rural, or other historically marginalized or under-served communities and community members.
Organizations wishing to participate will receive training and support to assist them in capturing content related to employment and community inclusion.
Organizational Development: Customized Training Systems

This project aims to foster collaboration, resource sharing, and development of innovative methods for training of staff in the supported employment and community inclusion fields.
Language Access: Tools, Training and Translation

An ILA device allows for real time conversations with instant translation and transcribing of over 250 languages including American Sign Language.
