Affordable Connectivity Program: Roots of Connectivity

      Oregon Institute for a Better Way was awarded funding for the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) through the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) in a grant under the title "Roots of Connectivity". Oregon Institute for a Better Way in partnership with the National Grange, our mission is to bridge the digital divide and ensure that everyone has access to affordable and reliable broadband access. 

      Oregon Institute For A Better Way is on a mission to create a brighter future for the next generation. We believe that science, innovation, and technology play a critical role in achieving this goal. However, we recognize that access to affordable and reliable broadband is necessary to make this possible. 

      In today’s digital age, having access to broadband internet is no longer a luxury but a necessity. It is essential for education, job opportunities, and access to information. Unfortunately, not all communities have the same access to critical resources. Roots of Connectivity is working to change that. 

      By advocating for affordable and reliable broadband access for all, the Institute is helping to level the playing field and provide equal opportunities for all to branch out. We recognize that access to broadband is essential for economic growth, innovation, and social progress. By planting the seeds of opportunity through broadband access, the institute is helping to create a brighter, more equitable future for everyone.

Affordable Connectivity Program: Roots of Connectivity

      Oregon Institute For a Better Way believes that a healthy workforce is a productive workforce. Our mission is to provide comprehensive and holistic wellness solutions that help employees live their best lives both at work and beyond. We understand that each workplace has unique needs, which is why we offer customized programs tailored to fit the specific goals and objectives of your organization. With Workplace Wellness, you can expect innovative and effective strategies that make wellness work for you.
      As our organization also works with the National Science Foundation (NSF) with their Regional Innovation Engines (RIE) program, when considering the realm of business and organizations, we like to envision them as the engines that drive productivity and success. Just as an engine requires maintenance and upkeep to ensure optimal performance, workplace wellness plays a vital role in sustaining and nurturing the key components of that engine. Workplace wellness encompasses a range of practices and initiatives designed to support the well-being of employees and create an environment where they can thrive. It encompasses physical, mental, and emotional health, fostering a culture of balance, engagement, and satisfaction.
      By investing in workplace wellness, businesses and organizations demonstrate a commitment to their most valuable asset—their people—recognizing that their overall well-being directly impacts productivity, creativity, and long-term success. From promoting healthy lifestyles to providing resources for stress management and professional growth, workplace wellness initiatives contribute to the smooth operation and longevity of the organizational engine, ensuring that all its components continue to run smoothly and harmoniously.
