On March 3, Joint Center Vice President Jessica Fulton joined a panel at the Internet Essentials Impact Summit to discuss the link between lack of resources in underserved communities and the potential for innovation and prosperity. Other panelists included Council for Opportunity in Education Kimberly Jones, Esq. and University of Pennsylvania Senior Fellow Dr. Heather Klusarittz. The conversation was moderated by Brookings Institute Fellow of Governance Studies Dr. Nicol Turner Lee.
The full panel description is as follows: “Innovation is a driver of inclusive prosperity in the right socioeconomic environments, but what about populations with limited access to education, workforce skills development, or healthcare? A panel of research and policy experts will share insights from their work that merge the themes of social impact with economic growth.”
