Joining the Dots for Digital Inclusion

From my Digital Workspace Works podcast. Please enjoy the episode and show notes: Podcast Link: https://www.digitalworkspace.works/joining-the-dots-for-digital-inclusion/ Freddie Quek, CTO at Times Higher Education, explains the movement to eradicate digital poverty in the UK and how IT leaders can get involved. In today’s highly digitalized world, exclusion from digital devices, education and support puts individuals at a significant disadvantage. In this episode, Freddie Quek shares information about a growing initiative to address digital inclusion for all, starting with school children. He’s calling on UK tech leaders and organisations to help with #joiningthedots through tactical and strategic solutions to create sustainable change. Six action areas to join the dots: Equipment provisioning Technical support Digital skills and online education Technical career opportunities Communications Governance, risk management and compliance If you are interested in getting involved or sharing information about existing programmes, contact Freddie at freddie@timeshighereducation.com or on LinkedIn at https://uk.linkedin.com/in/freddiequek For more information, following along at https://uk.linkedin.com/company/digitalinclusion
