Remote learning and working are creating opportunity for some while widening the digital divide for others. Workforce and economic opportunity funders have an opportunity to learn more about digital access and inclusion research and policy and roles that philanthropy can play in this space to increase equitable access to the tools that facilitate economic opportunity.
Join Workforce Matters and our partners at Economic Opportunity Funders, Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees, Grantmakers for Thriving Youth, and Youth Transition Funders Group for a conversation about Pew Research Center's research and findings; the work of the National Digital Inclusion Alliance and the DigitalUS coalition; and work being funded and spearheaded by the Cleveland Foundation.
Featured speakers include:
- Monica Anderson, Pew Research Center
- Angela Siefer, National Digital Inclusion Alliance
- Leon Wilson, The Cleveland Foundation
- Alison Ascher Webber, World Education/ DigitalUS Coalition
