Community Members Invited to Attend Orleans Digital Equity Workshop

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (March 20, 2024) — What is your internet like? Is it reliable and affordable? Do you have the skills you need to use your smart phone or computer? What would improve your online experiences?

The Town of Orleans is working with the Cape Cod Commission to develop a municipal digital equity plan to assess the digital divide across the community and to identify opportunities to advance digital equity. The goal is to better understand the challenges that community members face with the internet and technology and to identify solutions that ensure all have access to the information technology needed to fully participate in our community.

Community participation is a critical component of this planning effort. Residents, businesses, and organizations are invited to attend an upcoming workshop to learn about the digital equity plan and contribute to the development of the plan through group exercises and conversations.

Discussion topics will include internet availability, affordability, and reliability; technology and devices necessary for civic, social, and economic life; and skills to participate safely, confidently, and effectively online. Light refreshments will be served.
