Eastgate Participates in National Webinar for Digital Inclusion

Nov 14, 2018

The National Association of Regional Councils (NARC) invited Eastgate to be a speaker with BroadbandUSA on strategies for digital inclusion. Eastgate hosts the Digital Inclusion Working Group, an initiative to realize the potential of broadband and technology in the region. During the presentation, Eastgate staff provided an overview of its Comprehensive Economic Development strategy and how it fuels actions to promote digital inclusion through funding and programs. In 2018, the work group hosted roundtables and workshops with local leaders as well as participated in Digital Inclusion Awareness Week. Eastgate is one of the first regional councils to take on this role and is seen as a leader for other metropolitan organizations across the United States.
