Topic: Fighting to reduce the digital divide
Speaker: Zeina Osman, co-executive director, CompuCorps
should be able to use the internet to better their lives and fully
participate as citizens. This requires digital access: the means to
reliably connect to the internet, understand its uses and implications,
feel safe online, and engage with how the internet is governed and
develops. CompuCorps is a registered charity located in Ottawa that
operates across Canada. They are fighting to reduce the digital divide
which creates barriers for youth, women, immigrants, seniors and
Indigenous Peoples that may not be able to participate fully in our
digital society. This impacts access to services and career
opportunities. CompuCorps focus on programs such as STEM for
under-served communities and mentor them in computer software and
hardware workshops, free of charge.
