As digital equity is a worldwide issue, it’s helpful to zoom out occasionally and look at where the United States is compared to other countries. What challenges do we share? How are we approaching digital inclusion similarly and differently? What can we learn from each other? This is also a helpful exercise to see the big picture – to celebrate the progress we’ve recently made and identify gaps that still exist.
Angela Siefer, executive director of NDIA, joined Paul Finnis, CEO at Learning Foundation and Digital Poverty Alliance in the UK, for a fireside chat February 24. Angela gives her take, from the US, on if the digital divide will end, how we can sustain digital equity action, and what’s coming for digital inclusion in 2022.
