Podcast Series: The Future of Work

The world of work is changing. As many as one in five workers now make up the “gig economy” of contingent and freelance work, and increasing numbers of employees are working remotely, either part or full time. Many of these workers rely on multiple technologies to stay connected to their employers, clients, and collaborators. Workplace technology is also changing, with live video, artificial intelligence (AI) and virtual reality (VR) now entering the workplace. But where do people with disabilities fit into these trends? With the help of some of our partners, PEAT has developed several resources that start conversations around what we can expect to see in the coming years when it comes to the future of work.
