The Conversation

We want to hear from anyone who has an interest in digital inclusion. This conversation will enable us to better understand what elements are critical for our index to capture.

We are particularly interested in hearing how people might use the index, whether for lobbying government to improve inclusion, as information for funding applications for projects addressing digital inclusion, for comparing their region or community to the broader Australian society or any other uses. We would also love to hear from anyone who has data they think might be useful in measuring Australia’s digital inclusion.

We want to see all Australians connected, participating and safely interacting in the digital world, irrespective of age, income, ability, location or circumstances. Telstra currently has a range of products, services and programs in place to improve digital inclusion, but we know that this is a complex and challenging issue requiring participation from the whole industry if we are going to achieve significant change.

Is your initiative or project related to digital inclusion? We would like to invite you to join in the conversation and help strengthen the dialogue around this important issue. This engagement will help us in developing the final Australian Digital Inclusion Index report. You can submit your ideas through a feedback submission process or by commenting.

You can also join the conversation on Twitter using hashtag #digitalinclusionAU and by subscribing to our newsletter for updates on the report.
