What is “Digital Inclusion?”
Digital inclusion is the intersection of both technology and access—making the web, applications, and other technologies accessible to everyone.
In researching and planning for digital inclusion, you'll discover myriad service providers worth considering. However, due to the sheer volume of resources and the way they position themselves makes the discovery process a bit overwhelming. InclusionHub is designed to help businesses and decision makers learn about their options and make quality choices to support their unique digital inclusion needs.
InclusionHub is a crowd-sourced database powered by users and specialists dedicated to helping businesses understand and improve digital inclusion.
Our mission is to help businesses make quality, unbiased decisions, so it's important that the information presented here is completely uninfluenced. While InclusionHub depends on donations and sponsorships, contributing parties are entitled only to the benefits outlined below and are granted no right to influence reviews, profiles or criticisms.
The integrity of the InclusionHub resource directory is our highest priority and under no circumstances will that be compromised.
- Profiles are written by objective InclusionHub staff.
- Reviews are vetted for authenticity.
- Public feedback is welcome and encouraged.
For a business, addressing diversity and inclusion requires commitment from leadership and an allocation of resources. While D&I are civil rights issues, the degree to which a company achieves digital inclusion is ultimately at the company's discretion.
Once a business is awarded the distinction of "Certified Inclusive" they are permitted to use the Certified Inclusive badge on their website and marketing materials, linking back to the InclusionHub business profile and explanation of their inclusion efforts.
Certifications are renewed annually and profiles are updated periodically through the year.
While there are listing enhancements that can be purchased, there is no financial requirement to be considered and awarded the Certified Inclusive distinction.
We celebrate businesses that have committed to the following areas of digital inclusion:
- Digital Accessibility
- Media Accessibility
- Digital Diversity and Inclusion
- Commitment Documentation and Demonstration
Businesses that demonstrate meaningful effort in some or all of these categories are included in the Certified Inclusive business directory and permitted to use the Certified Inclusive badge.
