new norms so people and the planet have healthier lives. In this session, Zainab will draw from her personal narrative and profiles of women whose work is changing the world and what

The Future of the Workforce: Becoming a Best Place to Work for Women
Digital illiteracy, as well as limited access to broadband internet and digital devices, has created a digital divide in the United States that isolates large swaths of people –
particularly women in rural and low-income communities. To bridge the divide, we need to do more than just lay fiber. We also need to ensure that people in underserved communities have equal
access to digital hardware and software and high-speed internet, as well as the training and skills needed to navigate digital resources. Learn how you can help bridge the divide and why it
is important to do so.
