I'm interested in how digital equity and digital inclusion are considering the needs of individuals with disabilities. I don't hear lots of talk about it. It's especially important for individuals with vision loss. Accessibility could be mentioned in the parts of inclusion.

Where are we in becoming the first state to have all counties having a digital equity plan?
Deirdre Greene
47:40
I found a "developing vision and mission statement" worksheet through a Google search, which I plan to use when we get to that point in our digital inclusion plan.
Sarah Langer Hall (IEI)
49:14
14 counties with completed plans, another 4 in process, and launching another 15 coming soon
Katie Gailes
49:38
Do these plans include higher ed?
Sarah Langer Hall (IEI)

@Deirdre-please share those resources for others if you find them helpful
Joyce Holloway

What is the purpose of the broadband survey and is it important in developing a digital inclusion plan?
Katie Gailes
50:44
@deirdre - or just drop a link to that worksheet in the chat.
Jocelyn Romina Santillan-Deras
53:08
is there a list of counties who have completed/are in the process their digital equity plans?
Richard Rubin
53:48
Hi, how often is the data we might use as a base, updated?
Dennis Peay
54:19
One of the five points of Digital Inclusion was “Quality Tech Support” Who beyond the individual consumer/subscriber holds service providers accountable for quality support? Local individuals have a small voice against telecommunication giants.
Ben Farmer
55:24
@Joyce, the NC Broadband Survey data can be helpful when describing broadband needs in a grant application. Especially if you are working with counties that have a high level of response https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/4096f70b64474e85a6646969902e514d
