IAMCR is pleased to launch a new initiative: the IAMCR Webinar Series. 
The idea is to open-up channels for engagement and participation in 
addition to the annual conference. These include presentations, debates, 
book and project launches. The format is flexible, the connection is 
what matters. We are happy to echo the great work that is done by 
Sections/Working Groups and IAMCR members. We are excited to start the 
series with a very timely debate on “Digital Divide and Digital 
Inclusion”, sponsored by the Digital Divide Working Group.
