Description:

As our world becomes increasingly reliant on technology, the focus starts to shift to ensuring communities have the infrastructure and skills needed to take advantage of digital opportunities. Advancements in technology and a deeper understanding of digital barriers has allowed industry leaders to directly build products and programs to support these marginalized groups. Join us for a fluid conversation around fostering digital literacy and learning about the opportunities it unlocks.

We are dedicated to providing an accessible environment for all attendees. Please let us know if you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in the conversation by August 5th. We will do our best to meet your request.
