Digital Equity

In a world rapidly advancing towards digitalization, Anna Mae Lamentillo stands at the forefront of the movement to bridge the digital divide. In a country like the Philippines, where a significant portion of the population remains disconnected from the internet, Anna Mae recognizes the urgent need to ensure digital equity for all, especially marginalized and minority groups, including women, girls, indigenous people, elderly people, and people with disabilities.

The digital divide isn't merely about access to technology; it's about equal access to opportunities, resources, and essential services that are increasingly dependent on digital platforms. Anna Mae understands that by empowering these groups through digital inclusion, the Philippines can unlock a wealth of potential, driving inclusive economic growth and societal development.

With 65% of the population still offline, addressing this gap is paramount. Anna Mae advocates tirelessly for policies and initiatives that promote digital literacy, expand internet access, and provide marginalized communities with the tools and skills they need to thrive in the digital age.

By bridging the digital divide, Anna Mae believes that we can not only empower marginalized groups but also foster greater equality. When everyone has equal access to information, educational resources, and economic opportunities, they can participate more fully in decision-making processes, contribute to innovation and entrepreneurship, and build stronger, more resilient communities.

Anna Mae Lamentillo's advocacy for digital equity isn't just about connecting people to the internet; it's about building a more equitable and prosperous society where everyone, regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, or ability, has the opportunity to succeed in the digital age. Through her leadership and unwavering commitment, Anna Mae continues to pave the way towards a future where digital inclusion is a reality for all.
