Webinar: Building Digital Leadership

Closing the digital divide is a colossal task. While more people are connected to the internet than ever before, many still are not. More and more resources and services are only available online—those who are disconnected are truly being left behind.

As leaders work to address this divide, we need a support network to help. In this webinar, we’ll focus on a few of the things this network can do and what’s involved in finding, training, and supporting the people in them:

  • Raise awareness
  • Offer training
  • Raise money
  • Advocate for change
