Presentation Topic – DIGITAL DIVIDE 2020:  How we can close the gap
The digital divide is something we have all heard of, but what does this really mean?  Join us on Thursday December 3rd as Derrick Thompson (Founder of T&T Creative Group and Tweens & Technology) explains the various layers of this topic and how it impacts more than just one group of people.

Thompson will also provide you with specific ways to help close the digital divide including steps the Raleigh ISSA is taking to help!

Speaker – Derrick Thompson

Derrick Thompson is the founder and CEO of T&T Creative Group, a digital marketing agency that helps companies of all types solve their visibility problem.  They accomplish this by listening, utilizing analytics, building detailed buyer personas and building digital campaigns that work!

Thompson is also the founder of Tweens & Technology.  A STEM based program that teaches 3rd – 8th graders how to code while teaching parents digital safety.
