Wheelhouse Group Wins 2022 Service to the Citizen Awards
We are excited to announce that our projects were recognized with a Service to the Citizen: Champions of Change™ Award for exemplary work that impact citizens’ lives. These projects, the Partnership on Employment & Accessible Technology’s (PEAT) Extended Reality Initiative, funded by the Department of Labor, and the General Services Administration, Technology Transformation Services Communities of Practice, both focus on the power of stakeholder engagement to make a national impact.
Our Wheelhouse team members Corinne Weible, Bill Curtis-Davidson, Ashley Coffey and Alexa Huth, are dedicated to ensuring that emerging workplace technologies such as virtual, augmented and mixed reality technologies (collectively known as XR) are accessible. The team is working hard to make sure that all workers, including those with disabilities, can use XR without barriers. We are also thrilled that our PEAT partner at DOL, Amy Fong, was recognized as the top Rising Star in government through this award program!
Also recognized was our team Laurie Chidlow, Gabby Fratanduono and Alex Shulte for their work supporting the GSA TTS Communities of Practice. They work with over 20 volunteer community managers across government to transform how the federal government learns, builds, delivers and measures digital services to the public. This work is crucial to improving how government interacts with the public.
The Service to the Citizen Program is an annual award that recognizes those public servants and their industry partners who demonstrate excellence in delivering services that impact the publics’ lives and rebuild trust in government.
