Recording: Internet, Education, & Overlooked Populations, Mar 6, 2018

Efforts to equalize access to the benefits of technology date back to the Community Technology movement of the 1990s. Yet, as the internet proliferates, groups of people are left behind. Panelists representing often overlooked populations (at-risk youth, Native Americans, and seniors) will discuss how corporate digital inclusion models centered on population-specific partnerships drive significant change. Their perspectives will provide a blueprint for equitable digital inclusion programs.
