Equitable access to the internet, computers, and other digital tools is essential today. Cook County’s Digital Equity Action Plan charts a path to ensuring these opportunities for connection are accessible to all members of our communities. This presentation will review the inaugural Cook County Digital Equity Action Plan and its companion tool, the Cook County Digital Equity Map.

October 2nd- October 6th is also Digital Inclusion Week. Digital Inclusion Week (DIW) is an annual awareness, recognition, and celebration week.

This presentation will also share how Cook County celebrates DIW this year and other opportunities to participate.
