Yng Nghanolfan Cydweithredol Cymru, rydym yn angerddol ynglŷn â photensial technoleg i wella bywydau, bywoliaethau a chymunedau pobl, ac rydym yn ceisio cydweithio â phobl eraill sy’n rhannu’r angerdd hwn yn barhaus.

Ar gyfer y sesiwn galw heibio hon a gynhelir trwy’r dydd ar ein Platfform Cynadleddau Rhithwir newydd, byddwn yn clywed gan amrywiaeth o sefydliadau ysbrydoledig sydd wedi ymrwymo i fynd i’r afael ag amrywiaeth a chynhwysiant yn yr oes ddigidol. O ddiwallu anghenion technolegol cyn-filwyr a cheiswyr lloches i chwilio am atebion digidol ar gyfer cymunedau Cymraeg a BAME, mae’r sesiwn hon yn argoeli i hysbysu, ysbrydoli ac addysgu.
