The PEAT team is excited to share that Nathan Cunningham has received a Rising Star Award from the Government Innovation Awards. Nathan is a Senior Policy Advisor for the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy and has overseen the PEAT initiative since 2016.

Nathan’s passion for advancing workplace inclusion through accessible and equitable technology shapes PEAT and inspires our team. By melding his perspective as a person who has a disability with a keen understanding of the ever-shifting digital landscape, Nathan looks beyond what’s happening now toward an accessible future. He is a champion for disability inclusion in all aspects of technology development, adhering to the “nothing about us without us” principle that is critical to enacting real change.

As workplaces across America adopt and use technology, Nathan hopes that inclusive practices become the norm. Join us in celebrating this award and Nathan’s impact on building a more accessible future!
