National Digital Inclusion Research Initiative
April 2, 2020

Dear colleagues, 

In 2019, we set out to expand our mission to better serve and unite our national community of digital inclusion practitioners like you. In the midst of today's increased remote and digital demands, the impact and importance of digital inclusion is felt more than ever, and we know that practitioners and communities may see gaps become amplified. 

On the heels of our Network Virtual Meetup on March 31, NCF is launching a robust research initiative focused on digital inclusion practitioners . This national-scale study will help us develop a thorough understanding and map of common opportunities and challenges faced by organizations like yours and inform our programmatic work to advance digital inclusion together in the future. 

Please complete this brief survey to lend your voice and expertise to this study and help shape a new locally-driven national strategy for digital inclusion. Our hope is both to learn from you and find tangible ways to provide support during these challenging times, as well as to develop a long-term strategy to see practitioners and communities achieve long-term success. We are very eager to include your critical input.

The survey will close on April 15.

Thank you for your continued partnership and we look forward to seeing you in one of our upcoming town-halls.

Scot Henley
Executive Director
Are you a Digital Inclusion Practitioner?
The National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA) defines digital inclusion practitioners as organizations that are delivering technology and technology-related services to specific areas or populations; or, for some, the barriers derived from socioeconomic status, education and literacy, special needs or disabilities, or language.

If you are receiving this email or have ever received a technology donation facilitated through the National Cristina Foundation , then we believe your organization is on the front lines of addressing digital (in)equity in our communities and are, indeed, a Digital Inclusion Practitioner.
