Join the Urban Institute and the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth for the second installment in a week-long online forum exploring a pivotal challenge facing cities: how to achieve equity in the digital age.
Equitable advances in technology hinge on the public and private sectors playing vital roles. But proposed technology innovations may not always match the problem they seek to solve, legacy systems may need to be incorporated, and bureaucratic silos may need to be navigated to design and launch technologies effectively.

Speakers will also discuss a partnership in Kansas City at the forefront of delivering cross-sector digital services to residents.
