Delighted to share the video archive of the session:
Here’s the description from the program:
Despite the prevalence of technology in our lives, there are still many people in our communities who lack access to connected devices and high-speed broadband internet service. Income, race, age, educational attainment and geography play key roles in determining the likelihood a person will have access at home. This session will feature two leading Minnesota organizations that are helping individuals, families, nonprofits and communities bridge the digital divide. Presenters will discuss who the divide is leaving behind and what life is like on the other side of the divide. They will provide an overview of their nationally recognized approaches for addressing the disparity and explore what the future may look like for digital inclusion efforts. You will leave this session with a better understanding of why the digital divide matters and knowledge about resources available to help bridge the divide in your community.
Presenters: Sam Drong, program director, PCs for People; Bernadine Joselyn, director, public policy & engagement, Blandin Foundation; and Casey Sorensen, executive director, PCs for People
