Happy International Internet Day! This week during Common Impact's Skills for Cities Fall 2021, CEO Danielle Holly moderated a Community Conversation exploring the role cross-sector partnerships can play in addressing the digital divide and advancing racial equity.
We were fortunate to be joined by Angela Siefer, Executive Director, National Digital Inclusion Alliance; Dan Noyes, Co-CEO, Tech Goes Home; and Latricia Boone, Vice President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Equality of Opportunity Initiative, who talked about the social and economic imperatives for digital equity, the business community’s responsibility to take action, mistrust in government and corporations as an obstacle to progress, diversity and representation in the tech sector, and how community-centered solutions can be a powerful force for meaningful change.
We are pleased to share the full recording and encourage you to continue the conversation in your workplace and everyday life.
