Challenges of Systemic Inclusion: Why Inclusion Advocates Need to Work Together
Come join national, state and local leaders of underserved groups and leaders in digital, economic, educational and financial inclusion in the first in a series of six webinars hosted by FDIC and the National Collaborative for Digital Equity, in exploring why and how to come to the table to help your State develop and implement Statewide digital equity initiatives in support of economic and educational opportunity. Under the Infrastructure Bill’s Digital Equity Act, States will receive $1.25 billion over five years, starting in October, to develop and carry out plans that, with your participation, can foster “systemic inclusion” and impact intergenerational poverty.
