Behind Every Employer
Behind Every Employer S1 E9: Call to ACTION! Embracing (and Bracing for) Digital Transformation Under the Digital Equity Act
Amanda and Anne sit down with us to provide an expert review and valuable playbook describing what employers and practitioners can do to respond to the Digital Equity Act, a transformative law passed by Congress in 2021 that will drive a generational realignment for communities currently disconnected or scarcely accessing digital resources. Digital access and literacy are on everyone’s minds as this new $2.75 billion in federal funding reaches states and communities. Amanda and Anne underscore the critical role employers can play in defining and advocating the digital skills needed to remain competitive. Our guests leverage their local, state, and national leadership to describe the roles employers, state agencies, local providers, advocates, and teachers can play to support their organizations, workers, students, and residents.
