Current and Future Threats of the Digital Divide

Thu., Apr. 14, 2022 | 2:00pm - 3:00pm


Digital inequities reinforce income inequality, making the benefits of technology remote for millions of Americans. This session will showcase the lesser-known impact that the digital divide has on individuals and the aggregate cost nationwide when millions of Americans are locked out of a digital economy.

Join TAPP Fellow Francella Ochillo for a conversation about how current and future digital inequities shape the way in which Americans work, live, and experience one another. The presentation will also feature insights from Harvard Kennedy School's Professor Jason Furman, Tufts University's Fletcher School Dean Bhaskar Chakravorti, former Federal Communications Commissioner Mignon Clyburn, and other thought leaders in the broadband landscape.
