At ThinkShout, we know maintaining connections is now vital to our sense of community and support systems. The digital universe has become the new kitchen table, playground, and work station for so many across the globe. With competing priorities as we adapt to our current circumstances, making those connections accessible to all users has never been more important.

That’s why we’ve created Equitable Digital Connections: a series where we’ll be sharing online learning sessions, blog articles, and actionable information you can use to ensure your digital doorstep is available to everyone.

Next, we review some common issues and discuss best practices to fix them, including tips from our own workflow. Finally, we share our favorite resources and tools to bring back to your team.
