Closing the Digital Divide in Education
SOURCE: Common Impact
Dana Castro, HP’s Worldwide Education Manager, and Justin van Fleet, Executive Director of GBC-Education, join Common Impact CEO Danielle Holly as we continue our exploration of the digital divide and education equity. We’re in the midst of a back-to-school season where many children – over 17 million(!) – can’t even participate in the new virtual education environment due to lack of access to computers or sufficient Internet.
Hear Dana and Justin share how HP and GBC-Education are combining their talents and resources to ensure all children have access to quality education, plus how other companies, nonprofits, and public sector institutions can be part of the movement to close the digital divide.
