From Digital Divide to Digital Inclusion

Draft for the Hudson Valley Digital Manifesto


An all-star panel of Digital Inclusion advocates and thought leaders will present their ideas and work at the 2021 the Hudson Valley TechFest Conference. Inclusion is a hot topic up and down the mid-valley region. The movers and shakers driving this movement will be on hand live and virtually to discuss their activities and plans for the coming year.

Get ahead of the curve, hear what OpenHub, Newburgh Free Library, STEM Alliance Mamaroneck, Workforce Development Institute are doing and how you can benefit from their programs.

In addition, the National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA), a leading national advocacy organization, will present the New York Digital Inclusion Fund and how these planning and Innovation grants will expand broadband and workforce development opportunities. The fund will support innovative partnership models accelerating digital inclusion across New York State and fund solutions providing affordable, high-speed Internet, computer devices and digital skills training.

Any Hudson Valley based organization doing digital inclusion work and looking to advance digital equity in their community will want to join this panel, share about the amazing work they do, and sign a Digital Inclusion Manifesto define, promote and guide the development of a data-centric culture in the Hudson Valley.
