The Digital Divide: How can we bridge the gap between the Internet haves and the have-nots?

Alex Marré, Ph.D

Wednesday, May 26, 11:00 a.m.

Broadband Internet access has become a necessity in our increasingly Internet-driven society. Those without access to broadband service are at a severe disadvantage in accessing good jobs, virtual education, telemedicine appointments and much more. Alex Marré will explain the many barriers urban and rural residents face in accessing the Internet, as well as state and national efforts to increase access.

Alex Marré, Ph.D., is a regional economist at the Baltimore branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond. He monitors and briefs the public on regional economic conditions and conducts research on economic issues. Previously, as an economist at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, he tracked economic conditions in rural America. His research has informed the White House Rural Council, the National Academies of Sciences, the National Science Foundation, the Southern Legislative Conference, and the American Association of Community Colleges, among others. Dr. Marré holds a Ph.D. in agricultural and resource economics from Oregon State University.
