Advocating for Digital Inclusion Policy
NTEN courses run for one week and are offered twice a year.
Policy Nuts and Bolts
Understand how digital inclusion policies are created and where it happens
Spotting Policy Opportunities
Identify opportunities to engage your organization in digital inclusion policy making
Effectively engage with policy makers as digital inclusion practitioners
Policy makers all around the country are taking notice of the issues facing digital access and inclusion, such as net neutrality, privacy, and broadband access.
As digital inclusion practitioners, you have a unique opportunity to tell policy makers about your needs and experiences and compel them to action. How do you convince them to invest in digital inclusion programs?
In this course, we’ll help make clear the often murky process on working with policy makers, giving you the tools and information you need to spot opportunities to engage at local, state, and federal levels, and to successfully advocate for your work and your community.
