What's New?

Tech companies are currently struggling to fill job openings because not enough prospective employees have accessible technology skills—and their products are less accessible as a result. Check out PEAT's latest research, and the actions we're taking to close the gap.

PEAT is partnering with Apprenti to build bridges between the technology industry and inclusive apprenticeships. Combining classroom instruction with on-the-job training, apprenticeship programs can help companies quickly bring new and more diverse talent into the workplace—including people with disabilities.

Facebook’s Director of Accessibility Jeff Wieland and Director of Global Policy Monica Desai recently joined PEAT to discuss why and how Facebook has made accessibility a priority.

Jennifer Carlson, Executive Director of Apprenti, discusses how their program works with employers to quickly fill STEM positions with new and more diverse talent through inclusive apprenticeships.
