The Digital Divide is an economic and social inequity that creates a gap between people who have the skills and access to fully embrace broadband, communications technology and services, and those who do not. Digital Divide in San Antonio is directly correlated with socioeconomic groups where low-income residents fall on the wrong side of the divide. Digital Inclusion Alliance San Antonio (DIASA) aims to ensure inclusion by cultivating and promoting public policies and initiatives that prioritize digital equity, so that all residents can take full advantage of the digital economy.
Currently, there are over 30 organizations and 60+ members from community non-profits, governmental entities, businesses, public education systems, higher education systems, internet service providers, NGO's, and media outlets are working to create a more inclusive and digitally equitable San Antonio.
