This interactive session will enable panellists to discuss varied digital inclusion efforts in their unique contexts in order to together derive a more nuanced view of digital divides and inclusion efforts. It will enable participants to draw on empirical lessons from research and practice to recalibrate their focus on promoting access to rather promoting meaningful, equitable access - or digital equality - while also addressing the risks that accompany access to and use of digital technologies.
