Join the Economic Innovation Group on Tuesday, March 2 from 2:00 - 3:00 pm ET, for a discussion on expanding access to broadband and digital opportunity in some of the nation’s most distressed communities.
On average, 27 percent of Opportunity Zones (OZ) residents live in a home without access to a computer and broadband internet, disconnecting them from educational and economic opportunity in an increasingly digital world. Guest speakers will share insights on the importance of closing the digital divide in OZs, and the challenges they have faced in expanding broadband and digital opportunity to these communities. During the webinar, guest speakers will also share strategies for attracting private investment to digital access solutions, as well as examples of how this is being done in OZs.
