Closing out 2016, the City of Austin Office of Telecommunications & Regulatory Affairs (TARA) staff led the last Digital Empowerment Community of Austin (DECA) meeting for the year on December 9. Launched in 2015, DECA is a network of digital inclusion organizations and stakeholders working to improve our community’s ability to participate in a digital society. AFN has partnered with TARA to lead this initiative.
At the recent meeting, participants were asked to select action oriented sub-groups centered around the following objectives:
- Offer Train the Trainer Skills-based workshops
- Coordinate with TechHire: Workforce Development Initiative
- Create Digital Literacy Standards
- Develop a Standardized Client Survey
The groups will meet over the next year to achieve these initiatives which were identified in Phase I of DECA as short-term priorities. If you are interested in participating, click on the following for more information:
