Public Workstream Meeting: Policy, Advocacy, and Ecosystem Development
October 24 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 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.
2023 is going to be a big year as we measure and find ways to show Mecklenburg County the work and progress. The Policy, Advocacy, and Ecosystem workstream will be offering some community engagement trainings, mapping digital resources and setting a policy/advocacy agenda. Our mission is to ensure alignment between community needs and policy at all levels of the ecosystem. Each meeting occurs the fourth Tuesday of every month.

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:
- Support signing up for affordable home internet
- Support finding a no or low-cost device
- Support connecting with and enrolling in digital skilling programs
- 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
