Moving from digital inclusion to digital equity

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

At Hive NYC, we've been in close conversation with our network of educators, media artists, technologists, organizers, and makers to explore the distinctions between inclusion and equity. Through these discussions, our community has challenged Mozilla to change its priority focus on digital inclusion and digital equity. In this session, we'd like to collectively unpack what shifting from digital inclusion to digital equity would mean, how we define these terms in our work, and how this might impact our strategy. The framework for this conversation will be replicated from a recent roundtable discussion we had with Hive NYC members, and will guided by the following questions: What is digital equity versus digital inclusion? Is it a value we should have at the forefront of our work? What are the roadblocks that prevent us from getting to a place where we can explore our work within the context of equity? What do equitable spaces look like within the digital and technology education landscape? How might shifting from digital inclusion to digital equity impact Mozilla's mission to protect the internet as an open, public resource? This session is for all interested Mozillians, and may be of particular interest for folks whose work is guided by Mozilla Foundation's digital inclusion priority as part of the Foundation's strategic plan.
