Are you ready for Digital Inclusion Week May 7-11?

Borrowing heavily from the NDIA website – with an emphasis on let’s get some Minnesota events on their radar…

Digital Inclusion Week 2018 will happen May 7-11, and you can join this nationwide event online and on the ground to share what is going on in your community.  DIW2018 is sponsored by the National Digital Inclusion Alliance representing more than 300 affiliated organizations in 38 states that work toward digital equity.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Create or find an event in your area that builds inclusion by providing computer training, media literacy, affordable devices or internet access to people on the wrong side of the “digital divide” – or builds public awareness about it.
  2. Connect with colleagues around the country to share ideas through our mailing list.
  3. From May 7-11, use hashtags #digitalinclusion, #DIW2018, and #digitalequityis______ to join the conversation and celebrate progress.
