Community Connectivity Initiative-Webinar Series (updated)

What is Digital Inclusion?

National Telecommunications and Information Administration
Department of Commerce
Wednesday, October 19
2:00-3:00 p.m., Eastern Time.

When we hear the terms “digital inclusion” and “digital equity” related to technology and broadband, do we really know what they mean? Access to affordable and robust broadband is important but it is only one factor to enable everyone to be online. Join experts from the field to learn about the history of digital inclusion and how the definition has evolved over time. The speakers will highlight some of their work in the digital inclusion/digital equity space and give real life examples of their work. Our presenters will be Emy Tseng, Broadband Program Specialist, BroadbandUSA and Dr. Roberto Gallardo Estrella, Associate Extension Professor & Leader, Intelligent Community Institute, Mississippi State University Extension.
