NDIA has released a new white paper – “Defining a State Digital Equity Office” authored by Amy Huffman, explaining how states are in a unique position to lead cross-sector, cross-departmental, multi-faceted digital inclusion activities that impact the entire state.

The State Digital Equity Office’s Roles and Responsibilities should include:

    • leading the coordination of digital inclusion activities on behalf of the state,
    • assisting in the development of digital equity policy,
    • coordinating funding,
    • strengthening local digital equity ecosystems,
    • educating policymakers, local governments, and stakeholders on digital equity and inclusion,
    • guiding digital equity focused research and data use, and piloting scalable digital inclusion models.
