France-IX Lyon, in partnership with Wild Code School, invites you to the 15ᵉ RezoGirls meeting on Tuesday 07 December at 6:30pm. The theme of this edition: "Digital inclusion: the new societal challenge to be met".
Knowing how to use common digital resources (Internet, word processing...) has become almost as essential as knowing how to read, write and count. Not having access to the Internet or not knowing how to use digital tools is therefore a real handicap.
Today, 17% of the French population is illiterate, even though 77% have a smartphone and 76% a computer. There are many factors of inequality. Major divides persist between the inhabitants of our country, depending on the territory, the level of qualifications and income, age of course, or personal situation.
The consequences of digital exclusion are both personal and professional, with the impossibility of accessing one's rights, finding a job, housing, or just keeping in touch with loved ones... How can we make the digital world more inclusive? Our speakers will debate the subject based on their respective experiences and will provide a relevant analysis of this phenomenon.
18h45-19h00 : Presentation of the speakers
20h30-21h45 : Cocktail - Jacques Lafargue caterer
