    Bridging the Digital Divide

 We were in the process of migrating to a more digital society anyway.  5G, VR, Internet of everything!
But the COVID-19 crisis has forced us to face this conversion much faster than anyone foresaw. Yet tens of millions of our neighbors still lack basic internet connections! Lack of access has had a measurable effect across the board- from our children's educational and social well-being,  right down to access to vaccine distribution!  We know that now, more than ever,  to be a more equitable society,  we must close the Digital Divide.
Digital Inclusion means that all individuals and communities, including the most disadvantaged, have access to, and use of, our collective Digital Resources . We are our brother's keeper!
