Digital Inclusion Week (DIW) is an annual week of awareness, recognition, and celebration.


With support from NDIA, organizations and individuals across the country host special events, run social media campaigns, and share their digital inclusion actions and progress with media, among other actions.

Thanks to the 687 people and 503 organizations who took action, we celebrated the biggest Digital Inclusion Week (DIW) yet on October 2-6, 2023. 

Communities took action, mayors signed proclamations, librarians signed people up for affordable internet, children received new devices, and advocates around the country showed why digital equity matters!  

Dozens of organizations from across the country shared how they’re Building Connected Communities. Check out the official DIW2023 community video.
