LGBT Tech hosted a virtual webinar "Network Modernization: Ensuring All Communities Thrive as Technology Evolves" on June 27th. This event explored how evolving network technology can foster inclusivity and empower diverse communities, featuring industry experts and community advocates.

The webinar featured Lynn Follansbee, Vice President of Strategic Initiatives & Partnerships at US Telecom, providing valuable insights into why innovation cycles are crucial and what the industry is doing to ensure every community thrives as communications technology evolves.
