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.

Teach Access recently drew students to Silicon Valley for their inaugural Study Away program, where students met with leading companies to learn the value of an accessible technology skill set on the job market—and how it will help them make a real impact on ALL users.

Henry Claypool, policy consultant for the American Association of People with Disabilities, discusses the potential impacts that autonomous vehicles may have in the workplace and other areas of life.
