Equitable Broadband Access in Kansass

Event Details

Thursday, August 20 | 10-11 AM 

According to a recent survey by the Winston Group, most Kansans believe broadband service is as essential as electricity. Yet the Coronavirus pandemic has underscored the fact that many areas in Kansas still lack ready access to high-speed internet. And the inaccessibility of services such as telehealth and distance learning has complicated community response to COVID-19.

If most Kansans agree on the need, then what is standing in the way of progress? Join us for an interactive, online conversation to understand different perspectives on this issue and examine barriers that hinder more equitable broadband access in Kansas.

Kansas Leadership Center President and CEO Ed O’Malley facilitates, and Deb Miller, director of the KU Public Management Center and former Kansas Secretary of Transportation, will serve as conversation catalyst. This discussion is a collaboration between KLC and the Greater Topeka Partnership.
