One of the Partnership on Employment and Accessible Technology (PEAT)’s recent Future of Work podcast episodes features Steve Feyer, Director of Product Marketing for Eightfold AI, a leading HR technology company focused on talent acquisition and management, as he discusses Eightfold’s approach to reducing algorithmic bias and the steps that employers can take to do the same.

The Future of Work podcast is developed in partnership with as part of the PEAT’s Future of Work series, which works to start conversations around how emerging workplace technology trends are impacting people with disabilities.

During the interview, Workology’s Jessica Miller-Merrell notes that 2020 was the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and she asks Feyer what emerging workplace trends or technologies he thinks will have the biggest impact on people with disabilities in the next 30 years. Here is what Feyer said:

“Well, I think there are two very important trends. The first, naturally, is artificial intelligence. By taking bias out of the equation as much as possible, we are enabling the decision makers to focus on what people are actually able to…and really focus on their potential rather than any personal characteristics that are irrelevant. I think this is so important because people with disabilities have that right to work. And frankly, I think organizations are obligated to do everything they can to realize that right that everybody has. But I think another important trend is the rise of accessibility technology. Voice assistants, screen readers and all these other kinds of accessibility technologies now live in our pocket. And they work really well. So I’m hopeful that these types of technologies will make it possible for more and more people with disabilities to participate fully in every kind of activity, every community in the workplace.”
