The Digital Divide: How We Can Bridge the Gap With Digital Navigators

Location: City View 3 (4th Floor, Hotel)


Every day, we use technology to make our lives easier. Yet millions of Americans still don’t have what they need to learn, work, or access information online—a problem called the digital divide. That’s why support from community-based experts, or Digital Navigators, is critical to build trust and help people get connected.

Nonprofits including World Education, Inc., NPower, and United Way of Metropolitan Dallas alongside AT&T have launched several Digital Navigator programs in cities across the country. And because of the local-first approach, more people will be able to use the internet safely and successfully in these communities.

Join this expert panel to learn about the digital divide and who it impacts, how organizations are partnering to address and bridge the gap, and best practices for launching and scaling Digital Navigator services in a community.
