Digital Equity Accelerator, an initiative of Aspen Digital and HP



Across the globe, students and educators, entrepreneurs and businesses, governments and nonprofits all rely on digital tools and services to deliver opportunities in education, healthcare, and employment. Yet, according to the UN, almost half the world’s population is still offline, and many lack digital access and skills. The majority of them are women, mostly in developing countries.

On October 17-19, Aspen Digital and HP brought together global leaders from across philanthropy, technology, government, international development, and social impact to collaborate on closing the digital divide.
