Welcome to 
Partnership for Progress on the Digital Divide

Partnership for Progress on the Digital Divide (PPDD) is the only academic professional organization in the world focused solely on the digital divide and on connecting research to policymaking and practice to strategize actions and catalyze solutions to this pressing societal concern.

The academic research and practitioner community represented by PPDD has been working on the digital divide for well over twenty years and has produced thousands of books, book chapters, journal articles, and presentations on the topic and carried out innumerable community intervention initiatives, program evaluations, and engagements with policymakers and practitioners. This community stands ready to collaborate with government researchers, policymakers, and practitioners to build on our shared interests, methods, and goals to advance the agenda on broadband and the digital divide, to address the many challenges and opportunities presented by the digital world, and to further evidence-based policymaking and practice so that all citizens can participate fully in the digital, networked age.
