Digital Equity Forum

Washington state is listening to community ideas for ways to advance digital equity.

The Office of Equity is finalizing its Digital Equity Forum web page, and we will transition this work to its new page when it is published.

You can reach the Digital Equity Forum at with any questions.

Access to broadband services is essential and Washington residents are still struggling to get online. The state’s goal is to provide all residents access to high-speed broadband – 150 Megabits per second download and upload – by 2028.

The Washington State Office of Equity and the Washington State Broadband Office are partnering to convene and co-chair a Digital Equity Forum.
