Robert "Bobby" Silverstein, one of the behind-the-scenes architects of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), reflects upon how the ADA is now increasingly playing a critical role in ensuring equal employment opportunities for people with disabilities by ensuring the accessibility of information and communication technologies (ICT).

Lainey Feingold is a nationally-recognized disability rights lawyer known for negotiating landmark accessibility agreements and for pioneering the collaborative advocacy and dispute resolution method known as “Structured Negotiations”. PEAT recently spoke with Feingold about her work around digital accessibility and its impact on the employment of people with disabilities.

Social media is a key tool for employers today to attract talent and promote their brand. In this webinar, founder Dennis Lembree discusses the inclusive Twitter application Easy Chirp (link is external), which provides the ability to "tweet" accessible images. This innovation has won several awards, including the 2014 FCC Chairman’s Award for the Advancement in Accessibility.
