Public Workstream Meeting: Digital Literacy and Skilling

February 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

You’re invited to our public monthly workstream meetings! We value the input of all Mecklenburg County residents, whether you just want to listen to the conversation or whether you’d like to become a full member of one of our workstreams. Each workstream is composed of local residents, public sector leaders, and private sector partners.

Join the the Digital Literacy and Skilling Workstream meeting to learn what we’re doing to educate residents on using digital tools so they feel empowered to succeed in a highly digitized world. Their mission is to navigate different partner inputs and connect the community with available resources.

Overview of Workstreams at the CDE

The overall mission of the Center for Digital Equity is to make Mecklenburg county the most digitally equitable community in America, and each workstream tackles specific key performances indicators (KPIs) related to that broader goal.

The CDE is organized across five workstreams that generally correlate with our no-cost community services, which are as follows:

  1. Support signing up for affordable home internet
  2. Support finding a no or low-cost device
  3. Support connecting with and enrolling in digital skilling programs
  4. Basic technical support

Workstream meetings are hosted monthly, and you’re welcome to join a different one each month to learn about the unique initiatives of our five workstreams:

  • Data, Research, and Program Measurement
  • Device and Connectivity
  • Digital Literacy and Skilling
  • Digital Navigation and Technical Support
  • Policy, Advocacy, and Ecosystem Development
