Addressing the Digital Divide through Inclusion by Carolyn Chin-Parry

The Digital Economy had brought many benefits to all industries. However, one third of ASEAN is being left behind in the digital world. How can we address the digital divide and all play a part in becoming more digitally inclusive?

The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the use of digital technologies across all industries. Despite the many benefits of digital technology, there are still many being left behind. In fact, one third of the ASEAN population (i.e. 150 million people) is unable to participate in the digital economy. So what can be done to address this digital divide?

Please join our very own EGN member, Carolyn Chin-Parry, who is PwC’s Digital Innovation Leader, as she shares:
– Who are most at risk of being digitally excluded;
– What are the implications to society and the economy;
– What it means to be truly digitally inclusive;
– How we can all play a part to become more inclusive to support under-represented communities.

As Asia’s Business Role Model of the Year 2020 and IT Woman of the Year 2019, Carolyn’s insights and ideas to create a digitally inclusive world will be inspiring and indeed possible to achieve if we all act now.

In this session you’ll learn:
– Why is it that one third of ASEAN cannot participate in the Digital Economy;
– Who are most at risk of being digitally excluded;
– What are the implications to society and the economy;
– What it means to be truly digitally inclusive;
– Pragmatic ideas about how we can all play a part to become more inclusive to support under-represented communities.
