Digital Equity Initiative

Digital Equity Initiative

Our mission is to accelerate digital equity for the underserved in high GDP markets


The mobile industry is keen to demonstrate how digital solutions can enable greater equity and inclusion. As consumer groups and an untapped workforce, underserved and marginalised populations present important opportunities for the telecommunications sector in general.

Addressing the needs of underserved groups through mobile technology is both an opportunity and a responsibility.
