Event description

Description

Please Note: A limited amount of tickets are available per sector. Please ensure you select the sector ticket from which you belong. This is in an effort to have a diverse, well-rounded attendee list.

The Public Policy Forum in partnership with the Government of Ontario will be hosting The Ontario Digital Inclusion Summit where leaders from all sectors will have the opportunity to share insights, identify knowledge gaps and set a course to work on digital inclusion together. The summit will focus on three themes: Access, adoption and application.

We look forward to welcoming a diverse group of people at the Summit from all walks of life and representing a wide range of experiences, sectors and geographies.


Day oneFebruary 9, 2018: Learn. Be challenged. Be inspired.

Day one is all about understanding the context surrounding digital inclusion in Ontario. Expect a day of listening, learning and hearing from some of the top thinkers in this space alongside a vibrant group of people with interest and passion for the topic. The day will feature a mix of keynotes and presentations from a variety of speakers covering a range of ideas related to digital inclusion. Speakers include:

  • Hillary Hartley, Chief Digital Officer of Ontario
  • Angela Siefer, Executive Director, National Digital Inclusion Alliance
  • Nasma Ahmed, Open Web Fellow at Mozilla
  • More to come!


Day twoFebruary 10, 2018: Share and surface

If day one helps us explore the “what” of digital inclusion, day two is all about the “so what?” and “now what?” Expect an action-packed day of sharing, shaping and working with fellow participants to identify and surface some of the key opportunities, challenges and questions in this space. The day will focus primarily on facilitated generative conversations and activities in small groups. Speakers to be announced shortly.

All tickets include entry, lunch and snacks throughout the day. Note that day one will be livestreamed through the web and recorded for later viewing should you be unable to attend in person. Sign up to the mailing list and follow us on social media to receive details on this!
