Digital Equity Webinar & Workshop Series

In 2024, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) will announce new programs to help eligible entities pursue activities to advance digital equity in their communities. Therefore, several organizations – the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Educational Technology, National Association of State Directors of Adult Education, Coalition on Adult Basic Education (COABE), World Education, National Skills Coalition, National Coalition for Literacy, Chief Officers of State Library Agencies, and Association of Community College Trustees – are collaborating to help prepare the adult education sector for this unique opportunity. 

This upcoming webinar series and free workshop invites adult education leaders at the state, local, and institution levels to build their awareness of the relevant policy context and learn why this issue is important to their stakeholders. To further support adult education leaders in seeing themselves as a critical component of this national focus on digital equity, the 2-part webinar series will feature experts to showcase diverse “possibility models” of successful and replicable strategies from around the country. Finally, the webinar series will prepare participants for a digital equity workshop to be held during the COABE National Conference, where they will have an opportunity to develop/refine ideas, learn from peers, and develop critical relationships with other leaders in your states/regions. 

Dates and Times: 

  • Webinar 1: 1/31/2024, 2-3pm ET (virtual)
  • Webinar 2: 2/28/2024, 2-3pm ET (virtual)
  • Workshop: 3/17/2024, 1:30-4:30pm ET (virtual or in-person during the COABE National Conference, in-person capacity is limited to 150 people on a first come first serve basis)
