From the Benton Institute for Broadband & Society…

We’re Now Accepting Nominations for the 2023 Charles Benton Digital Equity Champion Awards

Do you know someone who should be recognized for their work in digital equity? Or someone who has brought a fresh, innovative perspective to the field? NDIA is now accepting applications for the Charles Benton Digital Equity Champion Awards. Named in honor of Charles Benton, founder of the Benton Institute for Broadband & Society, the awards recognize leadership and dedication in advancing digital equity: from promoting the ideal of accessible and affordable communications technology for all Americans to crafting programs and policies that make universal broadband a reality.

Nominees are being accepted for two awards: the Digital Equity Champion Award recognizes an outstanding individual who has made a difference in the field of digital equity, while the Emerging Leader Champion Award acknowledges an up-and-coming digital inclusion practitioner. Winners will be announced during our Net Inclusion conference on Feb 28-March 2, 2023.

Nominate yourself or an amazing colleague by Dec. 19!
