With Comcast EVP of Digital Equity and Public Policy, Broderick Johnson, in town from corporate headquarters, Comcast had big plans for this Friday leading up to Christmas.
That included hosting a digital equity summit at 11am with Inspiredu, a nonprofit focused on driving digital inclusion and literacy, that will highlight ways to bridge the divide in Atlanta. The town hall took place at 11am at Atlanta’s Westside Works, with dignitaries and media attending.
They also donated 500 laptops to students in grades 3-7 at KIPP Vision Primary & Academy School in Atlanta, located at 660 McWilliams Road.
The donation is part of the multi-day visit to Atlanta by Comcast EVP of Digital Equity and EVP of Public Policy Johnson, who is also meeting with educators, community partners and local leaders to discuss digital equity and the role Comcast can play.
The event at KIPP Vision Primary & Academy School is part of Project UP, Comcast’s 10-year, $1 billion pledge to advance digital equity through programs and community partnerships that connect people to the Internet, advance economic mobility, and open doors for the next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs, storytellers and creators.
A great way to continue the march to the holidays.
