Digital Inclusion Week aims to raise awareness of solutions addressing home internet access,
personal devices, and local technology training and support programs.
Check out what Austin Free-Net has planned!
Open Now - Friday, October 7 (11:59PM)
Between work, relaxation, education, socializing and more, we're almost always looking at a screen, sometimes even multiple screens at once. That is, if you have access to these screens and the internet to participate in their different functions. DIW aims to raise awareness of solutions addressing the lack of access to these necessities. Bring awareness to your screen time and digital usage by pledging donations toward Austin Free-Net and our Digital Inclusion Week festivities.
Tuesday, October 4 & Thursday, October 6th
Tune in to hear about digital inclusion from experts in tech and community fields and get the opportunity to ask them questions!
Tuesday - THEN & NOW Panel: A look at digital inclusion over the years
Thursday - BIG TECH in Austin Panel: How do big tech corporations support digital inclusion in Austin?
