Digital Equity Summit 2 - March 8, 2021

Breakout Room Materials

The breakout sessions explored possible solutions to six problem statements that were develped from input at the first Summit, using the materials below. The "Problem Statement" for each topic includes:

  1. an explanation of why it is a problem,
  2. a "Flip the Context" outline of what it would look like if the problem were solved, and
  3. a series of prompts to elicit participants' suggestions about how to achieve that solution.

The spreadsheet that goes with each document is a place to record participants' responses. (In our sessions, each breakout room used a shared document that participants could edit simultaneously.) It also includes all the background information from the Problem Statement webpage in the "Summary" tab, so it can stand alone.
