Recording: Digital Equity for the Next Gen, Mar 15, 2023

It’s time to challenge the assumption that all young people are “digital natives” and “good at tech” and see the reality. When we think about connecting the next gen workforce with technology, there is a disconnect. The digital divide still exists, especially among young people of color, and it was magnified even more during the pandemic. Many lack access to home internet, the devices they need, and digital skills training. How can we increase digital equity so those being left behind can be plugged into future work opportunities? These leaders will share strategic and holistic approaches that work to expand opportunities and build a more diverse and tech-trained future workforce.
