Building the Future of Work
What is PEAT?
The Partnership on Employment & Accessible Technology (PEAT)
Our mission is to foster collaborations in the technology space that build inclusive workplaces for people with disabilities. Our vision is a future where new and emerging technologies are accessible to the workforce by design.
Only 37.6% of adult job seekers with disabilities are in the labor force, compared to 77.5% of those without disabilities. This is a staggering gap in workforce participation that inclusive technologies can help close.
Data reflects information collected in August 2022. View the most up-to-date statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor.
We Help Build an Accessible Workplace of the Future
We foster digital accessibility in the workplace and a vision for “Why” and “How” to create accessible emerging technologies. Learn more about our work in artificial intelligence, extended reality (XR), and autonomous vehicles.
We Provide Inclusive Resources & Tools
Creating accessible emerging technologies involves a wide range of stakeholders. We create resources for employers, employees, technology leaders, and others on their journey toward inclusion.
