Arizona changemakers are committed to addressing the digital divide. We are leveling the playing field for all Arizonans by providing access to tools, knowledge, skills and resources that they need to thrive in the digital age. 

On Monday, October 3, kick off Digital Inclusion Week with ShapingEDU and the Digital Equity Institute, and explore how Arizonans are advancing solutions for digital inclusion. Celebrate successes and learn how you can help us make strides in this imperative work.

Our three-hour agenda is jam-packed with opportunities to learn more from local industry experts about the state of digital inclusion in Arizona and the United States. This interactive virtual event is your chance to learn how to leverage technology to connect the underconnected, and celebrate how Arizona partners are working collectively and collaboratively to close the digital divide and advance sustainable digital equity for all Arizonans. This experience will empower you to join us in making a difference.
