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.

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.

Brooke Aiken details the new features and tools recently launched at Section508.gov, the federal government’s website for IT accessibility. While aimed primarily at federal employees and contractors, these tools are broadly useful for anyone seeking to ensure that the technology they are buying is accessible.
