We are counting down to Detroit Digital Inclusion Week October 3-7!!! Check out the story below from the Detroit Regional Chamber with the full schedule!!! Register here: connect313.org/digital-inclusion-week/
Digital Inclusion Week is an annual campaign to highlight digital inclusion efforts and promote digital equity across the country. Detroit will be among 56 communities across the nation this Oct. 3-7 marking Digital Inclusion Week with activities and programming designed to celebrate, connect, educate, and activate.
WHY DIGITAL INCLUSION WEEK MATTERS: 30% of Detroiters do not have access to the Internet at home and therefore are unable to find information or access essential resources that have moved online.
With the Internet an increasingly integral part of daily life, lack of digital access means fewer employment options, reduced learning opportunities and little to no access to remote healthcare. Eliminating the digital divide will improve the quality of life for all residents and result in stronger, sustainable communities and a stronger city for all of us.
