The Charlotte Mecklenburg Library is one of 18 organizations nation-wide selected by Google Fiber to host a Digital Inclusion Fellow for a year!  For many years, the Library's been a key component of the Charlotte's strategy for ensuring everyone has access to the Internet, and I'm excited we have this position to help work on digital inclusion as Charlotte becomes a Gigabit City for home Internet access.

Know someone who would be great in this grant-funded position?  Share this link so they can apply!  Move quickly though, position closes June 10th.  A great opportunity for someone passionate about ensuring no-one is left behind as Charlotte becomes city where bandwidth is plentiful, inexpensive and available to all - a key factor in improving economic mobility.

Job Description

The Digital Inclusion Fellowship is a one-year program that will recruit emerging leaders from digitally divided communities to work towards increasing digital literacy and broadband adoption in their cities. This group of leaders will be trained on best practices of digital inclusion work and community mobilization. Fellows will participate as a cohort nationally in trainings, attend local and national events, and serve as advocates for digital inclusion. Each Fellow will work with a local City Host organization to address local barriers to digital inclusion.
