Internet2 is Committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Strengthening Diversity, Inclusion in Our Community
We believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are essential for a robust and thriving research and education community. As a membership organization with a global reach, Internet2 is committed to promoting a culture that includes, encourages, supports, and celebrates diverse voices and reflects the communities it serves.
The Internet2 Inclusivity Initiative (I2I), focuses on resources, attention, and scholarships to improve diversity and inclusion in the community of networking and technical professionals.
As part of this initiative, we:
- Provide a national forum to discuss and share best practices to improve diversity and inclusion in technical fields, particularly in advanced networking, security, and identity.
- Partner with other national organizations engaged in similar work, such as the National Center for Women in Technology (NCWIT), EDUCAUSE and others.
The Internet2 Inclusivity Initiative (I2I) focuses on scholarships to improve diversity and inclusion in the community. Read profiles of past recipients!
