Digital Inclusion Asset Mapping

Thursday, January 12, 2023, 2-3:30 PM

Asset mapping is an approach to planning and community development centered on identifying and building on a community’s existing resources. Asset mapping recognizes that, with the necessary resources and structural support, communities possess the knowledge and skills to develop solutions from within.

This webinar will introduce participants to the fundamentals of asset mapping and provide an understanding of asset mapping in the context of digital inclusion work. Through discussion and interactive activities, participants will learn methods for compiling and using an asset inventory, explore best practices and examples from other communities, and gain experience using and customizing NDIA’s asset mapping tools.

The webinar will be recorded and made available for those who cannot attend the live session.
