The Diamond in the Rough: Chiseling 21st Century Learners in a Broadband-Enhanced World

April 28 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

Event Summary: In the 3rd year of the pandemic, the United States has moved forward in ways it never knew it could. After passing the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act last year in a historic leap of faith, the United States has shown it has the appetite, as well as the funding and the energy, to close the digital divide once-and-for all. Getting the details right is a telling exercise: the nation is working to ensure underrepresented communities in particular — across both rural and urban America — have access to affordable broadband and critical digital skills training. We are delighted to be joined by a diverse cross-section of public and private sector experts who will take a closer look at how the United States is tackling the digital divide for its students, with an eye to understanding how the nation can seize this moment to support a more skilled and prepared youth who are prepared for the jobs of tomorrow.
