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.
 
The Innovation and Technology Council identifies and engages with business clusters that have economic growth potential - including signature, emerging and innovative industry groups. The Council aims to promote policies that will strengthen these industries, elevate their global reach, drive job creation and regional economic prosperity.
 
All Council meetings are open to Chamber members only. Media and guests are only allowed with prior approval. 

Special Guests:
 

Peter Manzo
President & CEO
United Ways of California 
 


Susan Walters

California Emerging Technology Fund
