Digital Inclusion Week
San Francisco’s City Hall lit up in honor of Digital Inclusion Week 2023
We hope you had a wonderful Digital Inclusion Week (#DIW2023) earlier this month (October 2–7)!
In honor of this special week, CTN hosted a Day of Equity Open House in which our team of digital inclusion experts hosted six back-to-back webinars on an array of topics related to the digital divide. We also hosted drawings every hour, and participants had the chance to win free access to some of our online digitalLIFT training courses.
If you couldn’t join us on Zoom, don’t worry! You can still watch the presentations and access the slide decks online.
