Protecting the Sacred: Balancing & Embracing Technology in Indian Country

About this Event

As 2020 has been a challenge for many communities, national conversations have often forgotten about the impact this year has had on tribal populations across the country. Verizon State Government Affairs in conjunction with the Native Americans of Verizon (NAV) Employee Resource Group will host an online discussion with key tribal thought leaders on important technological issues their communities are facing today. Conversation will focus on ways to improve digital equity, the impact of COVID-19, and how non-tribal organizations can engage with tribal communities focused on a common purpose.

Rima Qureshi, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer, Verizon
Remarks By:

Ku’ulei Jakubczak, Director of Local Government, Community Affairs, and Tribal Nations, Verizon
