A webinar exploring the Broadband Rhode Island digital inclusion stakeholder engagement process with representatives from multiple sectors.
WebJunction.org is proud to be hosting an engaging discussion of Rhode Island’s digital inclusion stakeholder engagement process. We’ll discuss why Broadband Rhode Island (BBRI) decided it was important to create a process of engaging stakeholders in order to discuss technology access and use. Key collaborators will explain their involvement, how various sectors were engaged, the impact of NTIA funded projects upon the stakeholder engagement process, and how policy recommendations were created and prioritized.
