Breaking News: A Week of Digital Divide Bridging Comes to KC


The digital divide existed in our community before fiber. And it will exist after fiber, too, if we do not join with our policymakers in effecting meaningful change.

“Effective digital inclusion public policy relies upon strategies tested on the ground by community-based organizations, libraries and local government increasing equitable broadband access and use,” says Angela Siefer, director of the National Digital Inclusion Alliance.

The Gigabit City Summit is proud to join with NDIA in welcoming their annual conference, Net Inclusion 2016: The National Digital Inclusion Summit to Kansas City on May 18-19 at the Kansas City Public Library. This exciting gathering of digital divide bridgers will happen right on the heels of the Gigabit City Summit, which returns to KC May 16-18!
