Sustaining Digital Inclusion


Digital literacy, technology access and broadband adoption are growing up. The inequality was first recognized at the grassroots level and the solutions also began at the grassroots level. We now have government, schools, libraries and community colleges all working to increase digital inclusion. Join us for a discussion of how to sustain digital inclusion efforts through existing programming (i.e. Funding). This interactive session will reference specific examples from Rhode Island, Ohio and Chicago.
