Leveling the playing field and ensuring everyone has equal opportunity to thrive begins with equity of access to the tools, knowledge, and skills necessary to fully participate in every aspect of society. By taking a holistic, lifespan-focused approach to achieving digital equity, including leveraging technology to connect the under and unconnected and create process efficiencies, we build trust-based, long-term, sustainable and collaborative relationships, and provide governments with a model positioned for greatest success.
The Digital Equity Institute (DEI) is a non-profit, civic organization dedicated to improving quality of life for people around the globe through digital equity and inclusion. Tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, DEI is structured to be your trusted government partner to help your city, region, state, or school district advance sustainable digital equity programs at scale. We are an alliance of dedicated public, private, and academic partners working collectively to ensure everyone is connected and participating and that greatest value and impact is reached.
DEI is an alliance of Public, Private, NGO
