“Silicon Valley Companies Tout the Value of an Accessibility Skillset to Students”

This post on the Partnership on Employment and Accessible Technology (PEAT) blog highlights an organization called Teach Access, which works to promote knowledge about accessible technology at the higher education level. Teach Access recently conducted its first “Study Away” program, which brought together students from a wide range of majors from four colleges across the country.
