About

The Digital Inclusion Alliance Aotearoa (DIAA) is a new organisation, established in July 2018 in collaboration with the 20/20 Trust to foster socially inclusive communities where

everyone has equitable opportunities to meaningfully engage with digital technologies, and benefit from the use of them.

We aim to enhance the confidence and capability of people living in New Zealand to engage online to advance their own education, employment, health and wellbeing as well as that of their whānau.

The Alliance acts as a catalyst for digital inclusion initiatives, by working with local communities, not-for-profit organisations, business enterprises and government agencies to pursue a shared digital inclusion vision.

We invite all organisations  or individuals sharing our values: Partnerships, Inclusivity, Open and collaborative, and Manaakitanga; and our purpose in working to achieve a more digitally included community is to become a partner of the Alliance.

Our purpose is to:

  • reduce barriers preventing people from different age groups, geographic regions, income levels, disability status and ethnicity, from participating in their communities using digital technologies;
  • be a catalyst for digital inclusion initiatives and work collaboratively with local communities, not-for-profit organisations,  business enterprises and government agencies to pursue a shared digital inclusion vision;
  • foster socially inclusive communities where everyone has equitable opportunities to meaningfully engage with, and benefit from the use of, digital technologies;
  • enhance the confidence and competence of people living in New Zealand to engage online to advance their own education, employment, health and well-being as well as that of their whānau;
  • support affordable and sustainable access to relevant digital technologies for people who are digitally excluded;
  • grow and develop the digital capability of people living in New Zealand, for learning, for work and for life;
  • increase the digital critical awareness of communities, so that people can keep themselves and their children safe online;
  • enhance the digital skills and confidence of people and organisations delivering community and social services;
  • support research and evaluation of digital inclusion initiatives and their outcomes;
  • identify and promote evidence-based good practice in decreasing digital divides;
  • provide a forum for individuals and organisations with an interest in digital inclusion to share their views and details of initiatives, metrics and results, as well as provide a voice for the communities they serve.

Any organisation or individual working to achieve a more digitally included community is invited to become a partner of the Alliance.
