There is an accelerated need for accessible, reliable, and appropriate technology for people and communities – particularly those in more rural and remote areas as well as those with lower incomes – to connect, learn and work together.

In this session, hear from experts about what’s needed and how we can build a tech-ready future.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Better understand the different challenges and opportunities for building a tech-ready future
  • Learn how connectivity and access to technology are critical to a tech-ready future
  • Learn about interesting initiatives different stakeholders are taking to support a tech-ready future
