Designing for All: Bridging the Digital Divide

October 8, 2020 10:00am PDT/1:00pm EDT

The social and economic gap is growing between the privileged and the marginalized especially the poor, rural, elderly, and handicapped portions of the population who do not have, or have limited access to computers or the Internet.  How might our current global crisis create the impetus for businesses, nonprofits, community-based organizations, government, and academia to develop innovative solutions to Bridge the Digital Divides, and in so doing, reduce the also growing wealth gap? Is it possible that designing for inclusivity can create a win-win for businesses and for people? Join us in a conversation with the Walton Family Foundation and Cox Communications to understand how trust-based philanthropy and designing for all can work together to bridge the socio-economic gap created by the digital divide.

The Color of Law, the Color of Money - Restorative Solutions to Redress the Racial Wealth Gap

August 27, 2020 11:30 AM PDT

COVID has laid bare the inadequacies of capitalism dealing with large-scale problems impacting marginalized people. For Black communities in particular, the impact of historic racial inequality has widened gaps in healthcare, adequate housing and education. But the most challenging issue is the racial wealth gap. Capitalism must be reimagined to work for all. What needs to happen in the area of racial equity? How best to address the persistence of the racial wealth gap? Join us in a conversation led by Tynesia Boyea-Robinson and Darrick Hamilton, and moderated by Net Impact Board Chair, Cecily Joseph.
