Partnership on Employment & Accessible Technology (PEAT)
Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On November 30, 2015 (EST)
The Partnership on Employment & Accessible Technology (PEAT) is a multi-faceted initiative promoting the employment, retention, and career advancement of people with disabilities through the development, adoption, and promotion of accessible technology. PEAT is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy and is managed by the Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology Society of North America (RESNA).
Guided by a consortium of policy and technology leaders, PEAT is the only entity of its kind that brings together employers, technology providers, thought leaders, and technology users around the intersecting topics of accessible technology and employment. Among other resources of interest developed by PEAT are 1) Accessible Technology Action Steps – A Guide for Employers and 2) TechCheck, a powerful but simple tool to help employers assess their technology accessibility practices and find tools to improve them.
