OFA Webinar: TANF and Technology: Preparing Workers for Long-Term Success

The Office of Family Assistance hosted a webinar on April 28, 2021 to review the role technological literacy plays in ensuring workforce success. In this discussion, speakers defined technological literacy and how it promotes equity by equipping job seekers across generations with the skills they need to succeed at work. Presentations explored the importance of prioritizing access, digital literacy, and digital inclusion for TANF populations. Speakers also discussed ways in which these areas overlap with technological literacy. Participants heard from organizations that provide computer and technological literacy training to TANF populations as well as learned of efforts to increase broadband access and strategies for integrating technological literacy into employment services and job training activities.
