Panel discusses local digital divide

Tuesday, October 5, 2021 by Tai Moses

As part of Digital Inclusion Week (What the heck is that? Read all about it here), a panel of government and community leaders will discuss “how the access issues we see in East Austin have many overlaps to the shortage of technology access in West Texas.” UT communications professor Sharon Strover; Mayor Pro Tem Natasha Harper-Madison; Kelty Garbee, executive director of Texas Rural Funders; and Nehemiah Pitts III, a member of the city’s Community Technology and Telecommunications Commission, will unpack the “disparity between those who are able to access and use technology and those who are not” in an online panel organized by Austin Free-Net. Thursday, Oct. 7, noon-1 p.m. Register on Eventbrite.
