D Convo #98: Digital Equity and Connectivity
March 6 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
D Center Design Convo # 98:
Digital Equity and Connectivity
Access to information and knowledge is a building block of democracy. Baltimoreans deserve, but do not have, equitable digital access and inclusion – to connect to each other, to services, to resources, to employment. What role might design communities play in pursuit of digital equity? What local efforts are shifting the current status quo? How can designers and planners include digital equity principles in their work?
Join Amalia Deloney, Program Director (Media Democracy Fund), Terrell Williams, Organizer (BUILD), Carly Wais, Tech Exchange Fellow (Libraries Without Borders), Lo Smith, Tech Exchange Fellow (Enoch Pratt Free Library) and others as we explore digital connectivity in Baltimore and discuss approaches and design solutions to address digital inequity.
