The Partnership on Employment & Accessible Technology (PEAT) is a multi-faceted initiative to foster collaboration and action around accessible technology in the workplace. Guided by a consortium of policy and technology leaders, PEAT works to help employers, IT companies, and others to understand why it pays to build and buy accessible technology, and how to go about doing so.

PEAT has put together a plain language resource for employers and employees titled How is the Department of Justice Addressing Website and ICT Accessibility, that help us make sense of these settlements and determine tangible next steps.
