EVENT Aug 17 2pm CST: Webinar on Microsoft Airband’s Digital Equity Data Dashboard

An invitation for a tool I wrote about earlier that I think is fascinating. I hope to attend…

Join the SF Tech Council this Wednesday (8/17), noon-1pm (Pacific) to learn about Microsoft Airband’s Digital Equity Data Dashboard, a public-facing tool that combines Census Bureau, Federal Communications Commission, BroadbandNow, and Microsoft’s broadband usage data (e.g., upload / download speed data) census tract-by-census tract at state and county levels.


Here is the Zoom link to the meeting:  https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85258884100?pwd=RHgzdUFEcFBOdUcwMkIvS24rd3Bmdz09

The dashboard’s practical value is that it provides a unified view of data from several different sources that allows policymakers and community organizations to make data-driven decisions to address drivers of digital inequities in communities.

Maile Martinez, Program Manager, Airband US, and Tammy Glazer, Microsoft AI for Good Data Lab, will demo dashboard features to illustrate how local organizations can get best use out of it (e.g., proposals), including what the data tells us about underserved San Francisco neighborhoods. They are also looking for feedback and suggestions for how this tool can serve YOUR organization better in your work to address digital inequities in San Francisco.
