Introduction:

Since the adoption of the CRPD in 2006, tech and telecom companies have taken steps to promote technologies that answer the needs of users of all abilities. AT&T has implemented proactive policies both internally and on the marketplace to ensure that products and services are accessible. AT&T Corporate Accessibility Technology Office (CATO) is another example of a positive and constructive approach to digital accessibility. The paper explores the inner workings of CATO, an organization within AT&T charged with ensuring that AT&T’s product and service develop cycles consider the accessibility of persons with disabilities, and highlights how it enables AT&T workers to continue their jobs and thrive, all while pushing the business forward.
