Promotional and Marketing Materials
WWRC utilizes the DARS (DRS/WWRC) Business Development Team and the WWRC Foundation to identify potential business partners and to facilitate targeted tours of WWRC and industry sites. These tours open dialogue regarding workforce-driven efforts, the identification of employer needs, curriculum requirements to develop job seeker skills needed to meet those needs, and potential internship and job openings. The highly successful podcast series, VR Workforce Studio, produced by WWRC in partnership with the WWRC Foundation shares stories of employment, education and training, VR, and the businesses who hire people with disabilities; these podcasts are actively promoted by the Virginia Manufacturing Association (VMA) to their membership.
In its Weekly Digest Bulletin dated 12/1/2017, the U.S. Department of Education highlighted a link from VR Workforce Studio's CPID podcast recorded live at the Council of State Administrators of Vocational Rehabilitation (CSAVR) Fall Conference in Greenville, South Carolina! Its 'Voices from the Career Pathways' webpage contained links to the full length production including a transcript, listing of guest contacts, a photo gallery and more.
