Curtis Dean

Community Broadband Action Network: Vice President digital equity – a condition in which all individuals and communities have the information technology capacity needed for full participation in our society, democracy, and economy – requires effort and coordination. Often digital equity efforts, such as skills training and device distribution are not coordinated among entities that are doing the work. During this enlightening panel discussion, we will discuss how communities can map their current digital equity ecosystem in order to identify gaps and take steps to fill them.
