OCF webinar: Bridging the digital divide
Wednesday 24 March, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
COVID-19 has brought digital inequality into sharp relief. Those with access to kit, means to pay for data and the right skills can adapt their lives to remain connected, educated and productive. But those without digital ‘capital’ are at even greater risk of being left behind as society moves online in response to lockdowns and social distancing. We will feature some of the many local initiatives for equipping disadvantaged groups with the tools and skills to thrive within their communities in the future.
- Welcome – Adrian Sell, CEO at Oxfordshire Community Foundation
- Spotlight on the digital divide – Chris Ashworth, Head of Public Benefit at Nominet
- Making a difference – Sabiene North, Fundraiser at Be Free Young Carers
- Supporting the change – Paddy Radcliffe, Director at Our Common Good, in conversation with Olwen Lintern-Smyth, Getting Oxfordshire Online Project Manager
- Over to you: Q&A
