The National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA) promotes and facilitates digital equity by developing tools for practitioners on the frontlines and providing data and stories to policymakers to help them support digital equity. They play the long game. They find systemic problems in how things are done and do the research to that demonstrates the issues as well as creating solutions.
A lot of readers will be familiar with NDIA; some may not be and I wanted to fix that. Some folks might remember when they held their annual conference in St Paul in 2017; it was fun to be able to showcase what’s happening here and learn from national speakers and attendees.
The NDIA recently released an Impact Report from 2015 to 2022. Here are some of the highlights from the report:
- Created Digital Inclusion Week, which included 102 events around the world in 2021 (happening Oct 2-7 2022)
- Published numerous reports such as, Digital Navigators Toolkit, State Digital Equity Scorecard and Digital Inclusion 101 Video
