COVID 19 has shed a light on Digital Inclusion and brought many new fields, practitioners, and activists to the community. Digital Inclusion practitioners have been working to end the digital divide for decades, creating their own community, definitions, resources, and gaining knowledge of what works and doesn’t. Digital Inclusion is a multifaceted issue that takes time to understand. U.S.-based National Digital Inclusion Alliance hosts a monthly Digital Inclusion 101 every third Wednesday at 1 PM ET including topics around:

  • NDIA’s resources and community
  • digital inclusion definitions
  • who is not connected
  • digital redlining
  • digital Navigators
  • local digital inclusion efforts
  • federal policy around digital inclusion
  • visualizing the data
  • digital inclusion trailblazers
  • solutions

Here are some of their webinar recordings:
