Event: Digital Divide During a Pandemic: How to Work Toward Inclusion for Your Nonprofit Community (Webinar)
Date/Time: 05/19/2020 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Location: Online - -
(from event page) If your nonprofit events and meetings haven’t been canceled, it’s likely you’ve moved them online instead. But with around 60 million Americans currently lacking access to the internet, the transition to online disproportionately impacts vulnerable communities, often the ones that we seek to serve or employ. In particular, communities of color, individuals with disabilities, senior citizens, and many others, may not have access to the internet and devices needed to be reached by your programs.
In this webinar led by nonprofit digital inclusion expert Debra Ruh, we will explore ways that we can continue to support a distributed and diverse nonprofit community. From video conference meetings and telework best practices, to tips on connecting with constituents and donors on accessible live events and videos, this webinar will touch on tools and tactics to ensure your approach is equitable and thoughtful. We will also cover traditional ways (text messaging, snail mail, etc.) to remain connected to your community.
*Please keep in mind that COVID-19 continues to impact events and business operations. We recommend checking event websites for updates.
