Technology, Training, Access Advocates

Our purpose:

  1. We believe too few women are in technology.  Society has steered women to roles that were once perceived more feminine and not technical.  This is to the detriment of technology and hampers the future of society.  We want to encourage more women to be involved in this field.
  2. We believe segments of the population such as homeless, formerly homeless, runaways, incarcerated, orphaned or those who did not complete high school lacked opportunities to learn and experience technology.  This disadvantage prevents them from reaching their potential and perpetuates a cycle only broken by an effort to expose them to technology.  We want to correct this lack of access to technology.
  3. We believe that rural communities have lacked adequate access to high speed internet access and this has contributed to a lack of opportunity to experience and learn technology.  We want to correct this lack of access to technology.

The Need In Kentucky: Access Is Essential


As we were forming LHI Matthew Leffler, the founder, told a candidate for the US Senate to check on the progress of his campaign website.  That candidate said he would tomorrow, he didn’t have internet access at his home.  

It’s weird to think that people in Kentucky largely see access to the internet as a luxury that doesn’t limit them.  For Many in the state, It’s an unknown, unknown … things they don’t know they don’t know.  

Kentucky is ranked 42 out of 50 in internet access according to some reports

The internet brings opportunities most of the commonwealth isn’t even aware its missing. Attempts by groups to address the issue have failed on grand, billion dollar scales but not because it can’t be done. They’ve failed due to corporate greed, a lack of will and cheap shortcuts.
