Provo Women Making History - Information Systems' Catherine Draper

Highlighting the women of Provo City as part of Women's History Month.

Information Systems' Catherine Draper

Catherine Draper is Provo City Information Systems' Office Administrator. Her duties include Digital Inclusion and technology purchasing for use throughout the city. Before working for Provo City, Catherine worked at United Way as a VISTA (AmeriCorps Volunteers in Service to America) where she collaborated with Provo City through the Digital Inclusion Coalition. Together they received the Digital Inclusion Trailblazer Award, which Provo City has continued to receive three years in a row.

The Information Systems Division builds and maintains Provo City’s technology infrastructure to support information access and technology utilization. A key objective of the Information Systems Division is to more easily provide access for residents to do business with Provo and to provide the most up-to-date information available.

Digital Inclusion Services offered within Provo City include qualified access to numerous competitive commercial internet providers offering low-cost high-speed internet services, free internet Wi-Fi locations including all city government locations, device access options (adopt-a-computer, computer checkout, computer labs), no cost digital literacy classes, free open computer help labs, adult & aging adult education offerings, and access to additional resources via our community volunteers.

Provo City Digital Inclusion programming is made possible by the efforts of our community engaged partners including, United Way, Provo City, Provo School District, Provo Library, Provo Recreation Center, Provo Adult Education, Intuitive IT, Google Fiber, Comcast, and numerous volunteers.
