The Decade of Digital Inclusion: Issues That Keep Us Up at Night

The Marconi Society

Wednesday, September 15, 2021 - 11:00am to 12:00pm
Time Zone: 
Virtual Event

We know the statistics—nearly half of the population is still not connected to the Internet. We’ve heard about the problems, from the homework gap to the lack of accessible health care to financial exclusion.

Experts from technology, policy, and digital inclusion will join forces to describe what the future could look like, the questions we need to answer, and the different points of view we have to consider. We will set the stage for the robust conversations that will take place at the Marconi Society’s Master Class and Symposium, The Decade of Digital Inclusion.

We will touch on the socio-economic issues of getting the right services to the right people, the role of governments in ensuring internet for all and the technologic possibilities and challenges for the next decade.

This event is free with registration.
