Bridging the Digital Divide: Ensuring Digital Inclusivity for All

Tuesday, Oct. 16
10 - 11:30 a.m.  

High-speed, reliable internet is essential in today's fast-paced society, connecting us to each other and to the world. Access to the internet is needed for facilitating education, finding housing, accessing healthcare, applying for jobs, and more. Yet, there are still gaps within our community when it comes to equal access to affordable and fast broadband options.

Join us for a conversation on the digital divide, the current challenges and opportunities, and what can we do together to bridge this gap and ensure digital inclusivity for all. We'll be joined by Peter Manzo, President & CEO of United Ways of California and Susan Walters, Senior Vice President of California Emerging Technology Fund to discuss the work their organizations are engaged on to ensure all communities have access to the basic services needed to thrive in California.


This council meets every other month, on the third Tuesday of the month, 10-11:30 a.m. at the L.A. Area Chamber.
