Verizon grants $100K to Associated Industries of Massachusetts to launch digital inclusion program

Verizon announces a $100,000 award to the Associated Industries of Massachusetts (AIM) to establish the Digital Inclusion Initiative (DI2). The partnership is part of the Verizon Forward Community Enhancement Award, a $1 million national initiative equipping communities with the tools to navigate an increasingly technological world. DI2 will help bridge the digital divide across the Commonwealth by empowering underserved businesses, including Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), women, LGBTQ+, disabled and veteran owned businesses, to access resources, workforce training, and business-to-business connections to ensure they are digital ready. AIM will use its statewide reach to showcase the power of technology to address challenges in under-resourced areas of the Massachusetts economy.
