Universal Connectivity: Digital Equity as an Essential Need

Maine Connectivity Authority

Room: Oxford Room

This workshop will define digital equity and digital inclusion, and what it means for your work, investments, and your community. You’ll get an opportunity to hear about Maine’s draft Digital Equity and Digital Inclusion plan, and how it might impact your own organizational priorities or funding. We’ll start with the story of broadband investment and digital equity programming for the Passamaquoddy Tribal community at Indian Township, how connectivity can preserve tribal culture and history.even while the Tribe begins to ask the question, "We're connected:  now what comes next?"  As we face a generational investment in broadband infrastructure this workshop will offer an opportunity to envision the ways that we can maximize that opportunity to improve the lives of people all over our state.
