If we want to solve this public health crisis, we need to invest in education. If we want to solve the climate crisis, if we want to promote peace and security, economic growth, job creation – education is the key to unlocking all of these different social issues.

Dana Castro, HP’s Worldwide Education Manager, and Justin van Fleet, Executive Director of GBC-Education, join us as we continue our exploration of the digital divide and education equity. We're in the midst of a back-to-school season where many children - over 17 million(!) - can't even participate in the new virtual education environment due to lack of access to computers or sufficient Internet.

Hear Dana and Justin share how HP and GBC-Education are combining their talents and resources to ensure all children have access to quality education, plus how other companies, nonprofits, and public sector institutions can be part of the movement to close the digital divide.
