Angela Siefer, Executive Director
As the executive director of the National Digital Inclusion Alliance, Angela Siefer leads the digital equity movement. Since earning her master’s in sociology from the University of Toledo in 1997, she has worked in the field we now call “digital inclusion.” Starting with setting up computer labs in underserved areas and managing local digital inclusion programs, Angela’s first-hand knowledge led her to consult for the US Department of Commerce and testify before Congress. In 2015, Angela saw that the growing field needed its own place to build best practices and community, so she became the founding executive director of the National Digital Inclusion Alliance, which advances digital equity by supporting community programs and equipping policymakers to act.
Angela also serves on the Board of Directors of the Schools, Health & Libraries Broadband Coalition. Government Technology Magazine named Angela one of their Top 25 Doers, Dreams, and Drivers of 2019. In 2021, the UCC Media Justice Ministry awarded her the Parker Award, and in 2023, Google.org named her one of its seven worldwide leaders to watch. As a member of the Board of Directors of the FCC’s Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC), Angela represents low-income consumers.
Angela works tirelessly to connect and uplift the digital inclusion community to address the pressing needs for affordable internet access, devices, and digital skills training for all. Through relationship building, high-profile speaking engagements, and interviews with news outlets, including the Washington Post, Forbes, and NPR, Angela has been key in building awareness and advocating for billions of dollars to move the digital equity movement forward.
