Radio Bilingüe interview in Spanish with Dr. Benjamín Durán, CVHEC executive director and president-emeritus of Merced College (April 13, 2023):
The Central Valley Higher Education Consortium was featured nationally on Radio Bilingue April 13 as a co-sponsor of one of 20 Broadband for All Digital Equity and Broadband Equity, Adoption, and Deployment (BEAD) Planning Regional-Local Workshops being held throughout the state by the California Department of Technology.
Dr. Benjamín Durán, CVHEC executive director, served as a spokesperson at the Merced event held April 14 and was interviewed for the Spanish-language show Linea Abierta on Radio Bilingüe, the nation’s only daily Spanish-language talk show in public radio airing live Monday to Friday at noon.
At the workshops, attendees can learn more about the digital equity plan, provide feedback on how to make it more effective and connect with others who are passionate about digital equity in California.
The series of 20 workshops is being held statewide to engage with the public and collect feedback as part of California’s $6 billion Broadband for All investment. Input shared during the workshops will help California develop the State’s Digital Equity and BEAD Five-Year Action Plans that will determine how future federal dollars are allocated to address digital inequities in the community.
Future events are scheduled for Tuolumne, Santa Maria, Seaside and Oakland.
