In an effort to increase digital equity awareness globally, the National Digital Inclusion Alliance and the Australian Digital Inclusion Alliance are co-organizing International Digital Inclusion Week (IDIW) for 15-21 October 2018. The Week will highlight our similarities, challenges and differences, and address the need for cohesive strategies.

Past Digital Inclusion Week (DIW) event hosts and new organizations are all welcome and encouraged to participate in the week.

International Digital Inclusion Week (IDIW) will build on the U.S. based Digital Inclusion Week. The last DIW took place 7-11 May 2018. Sixty-eight organizations hosted local events, and 539 users tweeted with the hashtag of #digitalinclusion for a reach of 3.5 million. 

IDIW aims to increase awareness and commitment to digital inclusion, create opportunities for national focus, promote international engagement and learning, and act as a catalyst to build an enduring coalition of national digital inclusion alliances and international efforts to create global momentum towards a fully digitally included world. The week will include increasing awareness through social media and a global video panel of digital inclusion practitioners. The National Digital Inclusion Alliance and the Australian Digital Inclusion Alliance are coordinating with other national coalitions to ensure a diverse level of participation during IDIW.
