"In understanding the possibilities that exist in using mesh networks, we pivoted to establish partnerships to support community-based internet networks,” said Mara McCann, Founder of Everygirl Enterprises.

Statistics show that about half of all young people who lack access to high-speed internet are less likely to go to college. In this segment, Advancements will explore the importance of connectivity and how by fixing the digital divide, young people are growing into successful adults.

Viewers will learn how Everygirl Enterprises is igniting the next generation of young women entrepreneurs with a social compass that leads to enhanced inner awareness and strength, via insightful connected content, social awareness campaigns, and interactive media.

“During this past year, we realized that our company had to make a shift in our philosophy and vision. Our mission has always been to develop opportunities for young women in technology. During this year we had to take a step back, to look at the barriers that exist for young people having consistent access to the internet. In understanding the possibilities that exist in using mesh networks, we pivoted to establish partnerships to support community-based internet networks,” said Mara McCann, Founder of Everygirl Enterprises.

Audiences will see how Everygirl Enterprises teaches young people to build sustainable internet networks focused in rural areas, expanding into inner-city low-income youth, and how educating people about the way the internet works can create community-based solutions.

“At the start of the pandemic, more than four million households with children lacked consistent access to computers or the internet,” said Colin Ferguson, producer for the Advancements series. “We look forward to bringing this topic to light and hope that more people will join efforts to break the digital divide.”
