AS digital technology continues to transform the ways we work, communicate, and access and consume services, many groups in society are at risk of being left behind.

At a special online public event, South Lakeland District Council’s Councillor Jonathan Brooks will join experts from Lancaster University Management School (LUMS), the Work Foundation think tank, the private and charity sectors to examine how a greater and smarter use of digital technologies can promote economic and social inclusion.

What Matters Now: Digital Inclusion takes place on Thursday, April 22, starting at 10am. It is open to organisations and members of the public with an interest in digital access. The webinar is part of the What Matters Now series, aimed at tackling big issues facing business and society today and tomorrow.
