The second Digital Equity Champion will be announced at NetInclusion this May. Named in honor of Charles Benton, founder of the Benton Foundation, the award recognizes an individual whose work has significantly advanced digital equity programs, policies or practices. Leadership in digital inclusion requires skill, patience and an understanding of the complex interaction between technology and social issues. The 2016 awardee, David Keyes of the City of Seattle, has exemplified those traits over his 20+ year career. If you would like to submit a nomination, do so at digitalinclusion.org/benton17 by April 20. The awardee will receive $500 travel reimbursement and registration to attend Net Inclusion.
