Downtown Discussions: COVID-19 and the Digital Divide
January 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFREE
The Downtown Long Beach Alliance’s webinar series, Downtown Discussions, returns on January 8, 2021 with a seasoned and diverse panel of technology professionals who will discuss the topic of COVID-19 and the Digital Divide. The virtual event will examine how the pandemic has revealed the extent of the digital divide within Long Beach and urban communities, and how high-speed internet access is becoming a human right. Guest speakers will discuss lessons learned during the pandemic, creative solutions implemented, and how these experiences and initiatives could influence future strategies to address the digital divide – with a contextual focus on urban areas, small business, and Downtown Long Beach.
The event will take place January 8, 10-11:30 AM, via Zoom Webinar and will also be livestreamed on DLBA’s Facebook account @downtownlongbeach. The event will include a 10-minute introduction, a 60-minute roundtable discussion, and a 20-minutes Q&A session. Audience members may submit questions via Zoom’s Q&A function, and the moderator will ask those she chooses.
