11AM (EST) to 12PM (EST)
Dear, Community Partner,
I hope this email finds you healthy and in good spirits!
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in collaboration with the National Collaborative for Digital Equity is proud to offer a webinar series, Connecting the Digital Footprint. This series walks us through systemic approaches that advance digital equity in low-and-moderate income (LMI) communities in support of financial and economic inclusion. With the wholesale shift to online learning within our education system, this series brings our focus to stabilizing LMI youth and their communities.
Our series begins with, Increasing Digital Access for Low- and Moderate-Income (LMI) Youth: Laying the Foundation. In response to the COVID-19 virus, education systems across the U.S. have shifted from face-to-face to online learning. However, this shift has stymied many low- and moderate-income (LMI) youth who lack digital access. Join us for a conversation on strategies to increase broadband access leveraging the Community Reinvestment Act and other resources.
