Digital Equity 2022 Webinar – Finding your Digital Equity Partners

February 16, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Hosted by the National League of Cities (NLC), these webinars are to help local governments get ready to make the most of BIL broadband programs aimed at making broadband more equitable.

More than ever, America’s cities recognize that digital equity is a critical component to enable their residents, businesses and local economies to flourish. Local leaders have achieved extraordinary gains to connect residents before and during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to position their communities to benefit from an increasingly digital future. However, cities can’t go it alone and partnerships are a key piece of the puzzle. Whether it is partnering with philanthropic organizations, the private sector or other units of government, city leaders must rely on these relationships to amplify their digital equity work.

Join our panel of experts to talk about the best ways to find your digital equity partners in your community, no matter where your city is in its digital equity journey.
