FOSTERING DIGITAL EQUITY AND INCLUSION!

Our Colorado community is growing and diversifying; today, one in ten Coloradans is an immigrant. Almost a full quarter of individuals living in Colorado are, or live with, an immigrant, which makes Colorado a state prosperous thanks to immigrants’ experiences and skills. Despite the many benefits of our amazing immigrant and refugee populations the digital divide remains in Colorado, especially for women. Teach by Tech is working hard to overcome obstacles to digital literacy training and access to devices and digital tools. 

Women have much to gain from boosting their use of digital tools. While going digital can be enabling for all, the digital gender divide means there is important scope for women to extract more value from their use of digital tools. Female users currently tend to use fewer services than men and are less confident in using the Internet. For instance, while mobile money accounts offer an effective way to boost financial inclusion, it remains the case that fewer women are likely to own and use such an account. Online or video-based upskilling and tutorials may especially help women make better use of digital tools and extract more value from them.

This is why Teach by Tech's mobile digital literacy lab is breaking barriers to education and meeting our clients where they live. To date, we have provided 3 computer workshops to 45+ Afghan refugees. Here we were able to help people set-up new chromebooks, create and use e-mail accounts, navigate the internet, register for workforce centers and find jobs. Next month we will conduct a 5 week class with newcomers from the Afghan community; a 4 week class with newcomers from the Asia Pacific community and another 4 week class with newcomers from many backgrounds. 

We are so grateful for your continued support! Every opportunity we have to go out in the community overcomes obstacles to education and helps to narrow the digital divide. Thank you for all your support and sharing our work with friends and colleagues. 

Warm regards,

Linnie Pawlek
