Internet Essentials: Virtual Impact Summits

In 2020, Comcast’s Internet Essentials launched Impact summits, a series of national and regional virtual convenings, bringing thought leaders, public officials, subject matter experts, and nonprofit partners together to discuss digital equity and the challenges related to COVID-19. This year’s summits focused on best practices for communities across the country such as K-12 education, veterans, telemedicine, and seniors. We plan to continue in 2021 with events that explore our efforts bridging the digital divide in education as well as in other areas including online safety and workforce development.
