Join the Disability Employment Technical Assistance Center (DETAC) for a webinar on Tuesday, July 11 from 3:00-4:00pm ET examining the new frontier of artificial intelligence (AI) and the potential opportunities and challenges within the labor force for people with disabilities.
New AI features and products, such as virtual reality (VR), have the potential to increase accessibility both within the workforce and our communities. At the same time, there are concerns surfacing about new tools not being designed with people with disabilities in mind and safeguarding privacy. In collaboration with U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) — which funds the Partnership on Employment and Accessible Technology (PEAT) — and a guest speaker from Floreo, attendees will explore new tools that are changing the way we interact with the world and how it could shape the future of work for people with disabilities.
- David Jones, Director, Office of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, ACL
- Nathan Cunningham, Senior Policy Advisor and Federal Project Officer for PEAT, ODEP, US DOL
- Vijay Ravindran, Founder/CEO, Floreo
