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 apprenticeship programs. 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.

PEAT and Teach Access recently published a video highlighting how the Teach Access Study Away program equips students to build their professional networks and learn about accessibility career paths from accessibility leaders at top companies, including Google, Oath, Facebook, and Adobe.

Held each October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is a national campaign that raises awareness about disability employment issues. One important way to honor this year's them of “America's Workforce: Empowering All” is to ensure that the workplace technology we create, buy, and implement is accessible to all employees and job seekers, including those with disabilities. Read on to learn how you can take part in NDEAM—and carry its spirit forward all year long.
