I was lucky enough to hear Anne-Marie Imafidon speak at the EDULEARN16 conference in Barcelona in July and Martha Lane-Fox at the WWW2016 Conference in Montreal in April. I was also able to talk with both inspirational speakers after their keynotes were finished.
From these talks and subsequent chats it became clear to me that the Doteveryone organisation is a vital and very interesting set of intiatives which include, among others, the:
50/50 strand – which aims to fix the gender gap in technology
Doteveryone Campus – which aims to network interested partners for transformational change
and importantly for me,
Digital Skills – which has a focus on developing digital literacies and Powering Up MPs (both topics close to my heart)
I really hope that I will be able to be involved with this work at some stage (as opposed to a keen supporter) and advise anyone reading this post with the energy, skills and knowledge to help the organisation to check out the links above and get involved.
