Closing the adoption gap and promoting digital equity
Highlighted in this workshop, North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper, who recently established a first-of-its-kind Office of Digital Equity and Literacy.
- Expanding access goes beyond infrastructure – we need funding for adoption efforts to fully close the gap.
- To effectively deploy this unprecedented digital inclusion funding, states need guidance and resources to maximize impact.
- No one-size-fits-all approach: States must work with community stakeholders to include digital inclusion in grant programs and planning.
