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.

Leading tech companies are increasingly recognizing the potential of neurological diversity, and are launching dedicated autism hiring initiatives to attract this often overlooked talent pool.

28 years after the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), people with disabilities continue to face unequal access in digital spheres. Oath’s Larry Goldberg argues that making accessibility a central part of technology education is an essential part of the solution.
