The second annual Digital Leaders Awards is happening on May 10 at Twitter HQ in San Francisco. It will bring together prominent community and business leaders to celebrate the people and organizations that work hard every day to promote digital inclusion.
If you know a person, organization, funder, or company doing exemplary work to close the digital divide in San Francisco, nominate them for an award today! Perhaps this individual or company is offering free computer classes for seniors, supporting youth interested in a career in technology, or perhaps providing financial or in-kind support to make services like this possible.
Nominations close on March 21, 2017.
