The PARTNERSHIP ON EMPLOYMENT AND ACCESSIBLE TECHNOLOGY (PEAT) is a new national
resource to facilitate and promote the use of accessible technology in the
hiring, employment, retention, and career advancement of individuals with disabilities.
PEAT online tools will organize information and present it in an individualized way that encourages engagement and action. PEAT users will receive only information they care about, as expressed in a personal profile they create and manage.
Resources & Training
PEAT will offer training and other resources aimed at ICT providers, employers, and persons with disabilities. These services will help identify potential solutions, develop more accessible technologies, and promote the adoption and implementation of accessibility in the workplace.
PEAT will collect technology policies and procedures from its partners, clients, and other sources through its participation in communities of practice. An ongoing dialogue will continue to develop new ideas and experiences that PEAT will share.
PEAT will work with ODEP and other policymakers to identify specific policy actions that will advance accessibility and coordinate policy implementation across the private and public sectors.
