livestreamOn Tuesday March 24 2020 at 1pm EDT (17:00 UTC) the Internet Society Livestream Channel will webcast a SHLB Coalition webinar ‘Anchoring State Broadband Efforts‘. A new report from the Broadband Research Initiative at Pew Charitable Trusts explores nine states exemplifying “promising practices” in their broadband programs. Community anchor institutions (CAIs) are essential partners in closing the digital divide, on both a state and local level. ‘Anchoring State Broadband Efforts’ will zero in on three case studies highlighted in Pew’s report that demonstrate the various roles CAIs play in shaping and executing state broadband initiatives. Speakers include: Crystal Ivey, Broadband Director, Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development; Anthony Neal-Graves, Executive Director, Colorado Broadband Office, and Chief Operations Officer, Colorado Governor’s Office of Information Technology; and Eileen Harris, development director, human-I-T. Moderator: Anna Read, Officer, Broadband Research Initiative, Pew Charitable Trusts.
