As communities plan for and implement broadband adoption and digital inclusion or digital equity plans, they also need to clarify intended outcomes and measure impacts. The City of Seattle envisions the city as a place where technology’s opportunities equitably empower all residents and communities - especially for those who are historically underserved or underrepresented. This talk will provide a model for digital equity indicators, sharing how the City partnered with the University of Washington Information School (iSchool) to create a theory of change and indicator framework for the City of Seattle Digital Equity Initiative. The overview will include background on the plan and how the City is using the indicator data.
