Charles Benton Digital Equity Champion Award
2020 was a crazy year and so many digital inclusion activists and practitioners have gone above and beyond to keep up with the increased awareness and demand for digital inclusion knowledge. NDIA is incredibly proud and excited to announce that our Nomination Form for the 2021 Digital Equity Champions is live and awaiting your submissions!
Named for Charles Benton, the founder of Benton Institute for Broadband & Society, NDIA created the awards to 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 it a reality.
NDIA will present two awards: the Digital Equity Champion Award will recognize an outstanding individual who has made a difference in the field of digital equity, while the Emerging Leader Award will acknowledge an up-and-coming digital inclusion practitioner. Awards will be presented during NDIA’s Net Inclusion webinar.
Nominations will be accepted until the end of day February 12th.
