13 Recommendations to Tackle Digital Discrimination

Nov. 22, 2022
Learn 13 recommendations the Communications Equity and Diversity Council (CEDC) made to help tackle digital discrimination.

The Communications Equity and Diversity Council (CEDC), a Federal Communication Commission (FCC) advisory committee, recently adopted a report containing recommendations and best practices to prevent digital discrimination by Internet service providers (ISPs) and promote digital equity.

The report provides recommendations to the FCC on public policies, programs, and other strategic initiatives to "advance the equity in the process of and access to digital communications services and products for all people," which is consistent with the goals of the CEDC.

The CEDC is composed of diverse stakeholders representing the telecommunications industry, public interest groups, nonprofits, associations, and small, minority-owned, and woman-owned media. The council voted to approve the final report before it was officially sent to Jessica Rosenworcel, FCC Chairwoman.

The report is divided into the recommendations and best practices developed by three working groups, each with a different focus area. Those groups are Diversity and Equity (D&E), Innovation and Access (I&A), and Digital Empowerment and Inclusion (DEI). The report also includes 13 key recommendations for states and localities in support of digital equity.
