Digital Inclusion Week: San Francisco 2017

What is Digital Inclusion Week?

Digital Inclusion Week (DIW) is a citywide initiative comprised of events spearheaded by the San Francisco Public Library. The goal of the program is to promote online access and technology skill-building in efforts to reduce digital disparities in our communities.

Digital Inclusion Week features include movie screenings, hands-on classes, panel discussions, a tech expo with resources for seniors and others, a week-long Learning for Action game and raffle, digital device give-aways, exciting keynote speakers and more.

Digital Inclusion Week Aims To:

  • Raise awareness of the digital divide in the Bay Area
  • Provide information about technology services and training opportunities
  • Enhance collaboration between government, nonprofit and private sectors

Who can participate?

Digital Inclusion Week is free, open to the public, and has something for everyone. Events are geared towards people who are interested in connecting or expanding their tech skills, to seniors, people with disabilities, volunteers, tech industry professionals, policymaker and nonprofits working towards digital inclusion.
