Thank You for Making Net Inclusion 2023 the Best & Biggest Yet!

Net Inclusion 2023 was February 28 through March 2 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas. We were thrilled to be in community with a record-breaking 800 digital inclusion practitioners, policymakers, advocates, researchers, and other digital inclusion leaders.

The 2022 Net Inclusion Conference had all the feels. Seriously, it was the first large event that I’ve attended in two years. The apprehension of being in a large group in the midst of a pandemic, along with the thrill of actually meeting people in person that you’ve only seen virtually was a quandary of feelings. Thankfully, the apprehension quickly passed as NDIA made this the most welcoming and inclusive conference that I’ve attended. Organizations and individuals from diverse regions, communities, abilities, and backgrounds were well represented. The conference also had a diverse set of panels, speakers, and workshops including topics like structural racism, digital inclusion research, state and local funding, and economic development.”

Lightning Rounds

Since our first Net Inclusion in Kansas City in 2016, NDIA has featured Lightning Rounds in plenary sessions as a way to shine a spotlight on dozens of great digital inclusion initiatives and to encourage peer-to-peer networking among our affiliates and friends. Think of it as a beacon to find the people you’d love to have a hallway conversation with. Net Inclusion 2023 will most likely feature four 30-minute Lightning Rounds, accommodating a total of 25 to 30 presentations. Each presenter will get a maximum of three minutes at the microphone, accompanied by no more than five slides.

 NDIA hosted Net Inclusion 2023 in Texas to support the local digital inclusion community there and to help practitioners nationwide learn from their leadership and ecosystem. This was not an endorsement for recent discriminatory policies and laws in the state, but a move to support equity!


Thank you to our local and national planning teams for making Net Inclusion 2023 possible, and special thanks to San Antonio Digital Inclusion Alliance, leading the local digital inclusion movement.
