Lots of opportunity in Hennepin County…
Digital Inclusion Week
This week is Digital Inclusion Week. At Hennepin County, we are taking time to highlight some of the opportunities to collaborate to ensure all residents have access to the technology they need to achieve their goals.
If you have a story about the impact of technology, especially during the pandemic, use hashtags #DIW2021 and #digitalequityNOW during this week to join the conversation.
Stay tuned for more news in the coming days as local government leaders raise further awareness about this important topic.
