Presentation Title:

  • Digital Divide




  • Studies have shown that minority communities are less likely to have access to techno-logically advanced resources. Created by deeply ingrained social and economic disparities, this “digital divide” has already led to underrepresentation of minorities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, with the consequence that these students may be less prepared to compete and participate in the 21st century workforce. This panel discussion addresses issues of technological accessibility within minority communities, and proposes ways to make technology culturally relevant. Panelists include: Sandra Begay-Campbell, Tameka Huff, Henry Rael and Juan Abeyta.
