Indigenous Connectivity Summit 2021

‹ Back

With the success of last year’s virtual summit, the 2021 ICS was hosted again as an online event. We continued to utilize the tools and techniques that made the 2020 summit an engaging and productive experience, while introducing new virtual elements to build on an already successful format.

  • Zoom
  • Virtual polling and surveys
  • Virtual networking platforms, including social events and entertainment that showcase Indigenous works
  • Physical Ethernet kits and event merchandise mailed to attendees

Indigenous Connectivity Summit sponsors had the unique opportunity to connect with more than 200 technical, government, academic, and policy leaders who are from, or working with, Indigenous communities.

For more information about becoming a sponsor please contact Mark Buell ([email protected]).
