This episode of the Workology podcast is part of our Future of Work series powered by PEAT, the Partnership on Employment and Accessible Technology. In honor of the upcoming 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act this year, we're investigating what the next 30 years will look like for people with disabilities at work and the potential of emerging technologies to make workplaces more inclusive and accessible. Today, I'm joined by Reyma McDeid. Reyma is the executive director of the Central Iowa Center for Independent Living. They are a winner of the 2018 Organization of the Year award from the Des Moines Civil and Human Rights Commission. She serves as the treasurer for both the National Council on Independent Living and the Autistic Self Advocacy Network. She is the recipient of the 2019 AT&T Humanity of Connection Award, and her 2018 run for office was endorsed by the Working Families Party, the Asian and Latino Coalition, and the Iowa Women for Progressive Change. Reyma, welcome to the Workology podcast.
