Milwaukee is a highly accessible tech scene brimming with gritty pioneers.

One Milwaukee nonprofit is doing what it can to reduce the city’s digital divide

Bertha Nance, 60, has been in Milwaukee for almost 40 years. But the first time she used a computer was 15 years ago when she helped her grandson with homework and even then, she struggled to use it. “I was intimidated by computers,” she said. “I don’t really like technology.”  Last week, she and 20 other students at the YWCA’s high school equivalency diploma class, received computers, thanks to the nonprofit organization Digital Bridge.
