Principles for Digital Equity Vision

Through our dialogues and consultative process, we arrived at a number of principles to guide the work of creating visions of digital equity. Below are principles we have organized into five thematic groups:

  1. Strive for Equity Beyond Just Digital
  2. Empower Communities
  3. Focus on Community Benefits
  4. Plan for Sustainability
  5. Stay Accountable to the Vision and to the Community

These principles are not intended to stand alone; indeed, they often reinforce one another. We recognize that this is not an exhaustive list, but it does represent repeated themes heard in our conversations.
