7 percentDid You Know?

The U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) has set a utilization goal for sponsors of Registered Apprenticeship Programs (RAPs): 7% of individuals enrolled in the RAP should be individuals with disabilities.

This goal is a benchmark set to strengthen an organization’s commitment to creating a more diverse, equitable, inclusive, and accessible apprenticeship program. These programs can foster career pathways and talent pipelines for a wealth of diverse job seekers with disabilities whose talent is untapped or under-tapped.

What Now?

Follow the guidance laid out in PIA’s Apprenticeship Equal Employment Opportunity Toolkit, which will help put businesses on the path toward reaching the 7% goal and complying with USDOL’s Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) regulations for Registered Apprenticeship Programs.
