LWIA Coordinators and Content Managers

Any partner can add events to the Event Calendar but only LWIA Illinois workNet Coordinators or Content Managers can manage events for a Local Workforce Innovation Area.  

If you're an LWIA Coordinator or Manager, login to your account at the top right corner of this page, go to your My Dashboard, then select Partner Tools.


Any Partner Can Add Events or Copy/Paste the Calendar to Their Website

Who can use it? If you have an Illinois workNet account, you can:

  • Add events to the Illinois workNet Calendar.

  • Copy/paste the calendar  into your website and have it default to show events in your area.

Where does the information display? Once entries are approved, they show immediately on the Illinois workNet calendar, specialized program website calendars, the jobPrep app, and additional websites that have copy/pasted the calendar.

Learn more about these options below.
