Leeds In Conversation

Episode Eight - The Digital Divide

July 26, 2020

On this episode, Eve Roodhouse (Chief Officer of Economic Development at Leeds City Council) is joined by Jason Tutin (Digital and Learning Development Manager, Leeds Libraries) and Roz Davies (Managing Director, Mhabitat) to discuss the barriers and challenges of being digitally excluded. They explain what is meant by digital exclusion and why it is so important to ensure everyone has access to digital and internet facilities for health and wealth benefits. They also reflect on the ways Covid-19 has increased the digital divide and how business, enterprises and government organisations can help reduce this gap.
