Community partners, policymakers and the public are invited to join Rusty Weaver, ILR Buffalo Co-Lab research director, for a virtual presentation of the newly updated New York State Digital Equity Portal from noon to 1:30 p.m. May 24.

In December 2021, The ILR School and Community Tech NY launched the New York State Digital Equity Portal in partnership with the New York State Department of Education, the New York State Library and the John R. Oishei Foundation.

The portal is an interactive, online data mapping tool for communities and individuals seeking data to inform broadband adoption and improve digital equity for millions of New York state residents without wired internet access.

Recently released new data prompted a 2024 update to the portal, Weaver said.
