IT Works - Research Overview

  • We will develop a theoretical model incorporating environmental factors, organizational factors, attitudinal factors, and individual characteristics to predict hiring rate, advancement rate, retention rate, and wages of individuals with disabilities.
  • We will survey and interview:
    • human resource managers at IT and non-IT companies (defined by Information Technology Association of America),
    • individuals with disabilities working at these companies,
    • individuals with disabilities who graduated from Federally funded IT training and employment programs,
    • directors of these training programs, and
    • IT trainers

  • A five-year longitudinal approach will identify trends in these measures over time. Case studies, descriptive statistics, and multivariate regression analyses will be performed on the outcome measures to assess the influences of predictor measures, in combination and alone.
