Don't miss the Nation's Premier Digital Inclusion Conference & Community:
May 20-22, 2025 at the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass

The Net Inclusion conference has been a staple in the digital inclusion community since 2016, bringing hundreds of practitioners, advocates, academics, internet service providers, and policymakers together to share their knowledge and discuss:

  • Local, state, Tribal, and federal policies impacting digital equity
  • Digital inclusion best practices from across the country, including new sessions on AI and digital equity, rural and Tribal outreach, and securing funding for sustainability
  • Digital inclusion programming, including the latest on digital navigators, digital health equity, accessibility, serving diverse populations, and community-centered work

Net Inclusion 2024 was our largest conference yet, and 2025 promises to break all those records. 

Check out the recorded sessions from NI24 here.

“On behalf of the Gila River Indian Community, I am absolutely thrilled to welcome the National Digital Inclusion Alliance to our ancestral homelands for Net Inclusion 2025. We are honored to make history as the first tribal community to host Net Inclusion, the premier national conference on digital equity. Next year’s event is anticipated to be the largest digital equity conference ever!

I believe NDIA is committed to supporting indigenous communities nationwide, as demonstrated with the launch of its ‘Seven Star Communities’ program, which shines a spotlight on successful digital inclusion efforts within Native communities. We are proud to be at the forefront of this movement with our Fiber-to-the-Home broadband network, our long-standing CTC Lab, the new Digital Connect Initiative, and our commitment to STEM education in GRIC schools. 

To all who attend NI25, I hope you enjoy your visit to Gila River and make meaningful connections during this historic occasion. Together, we will forge new paths toward digital equity. I look forward to a transformative and inspiring conference!”

Governor, Gila River Indian Community

“Net Inclusion is the premiere digital equity value-add for policymakers, advocates, researchers, evaluators, and community partners. It uniquely crafts conversations to counter broadband access and digital literacy gaps.  Simultaneously, it opens space for identifying community-centered metrics to reflect the humanity of those served. The conference is robust, energetic, and welcoming to diverse professionals ready to change lives.”

Marvin L. Venay

Chief Advocacy Officer, Tech Goes Home

“Net Inclusion is that one opportunity each year to gain deep insights — and practical tools — from fellow digital opportunity practitioners, policymakers, financiers, funders, and evaluators. The spirit of collaboration, shared ambition, and economies of scale help us continue to build digital opportunity and to move faster for the people we serve.”
