Today’s cities, enterprises, and higher education institutions are not yet inclusive for all.
G3ict research and analysis show that the digital transformation of cities, higher education institutions, and enterprises around the world is not yet equally benefiting persons with disabilities and older persons.
G3ict’s suite of Smart Digital Inclusion Maturity Models is helping to change that and make cities, higher education institutions, and enterprises worldwide more inclusive.
G3ict’s Smart City Digital Inclusion Maturity Model© and Smart University Digital Inclusion Maturity Model© tools help cities and higher education institutions assess and benchmark their level of digital inclusion and ICT accessibility. The Smart Enterprise Maturity Model helps companies of all sizes assess their level of accessibility and inclusion for both customers and employees. This suite of maturity model tools helps clearly evaluate progress towards achieving ICT accessibility and digital inclusion across a broad range of functions that are important to all organizations, like procurement, training, and standards, etc. Each tool defines key performance indicators and metrics to support advancing accessibility and inclusion. Each lays out 5 distinct levels of maturity for inclusion and accessibility progress across multiple dimensions that are important to cities, higher education institutions, and enterprises, i.e., technology, data, culture, strategy, and governance. G3ict’s Smart Digital Inclusion Maturity Model tools support the development of roadmaps and strategies to grow and mature an organization’s commitment to and capabilities on inclusion and accessibility. The suite of maturity model tools includes an optional built environment supplement that can be integrated into assessments of all kinds of organizations.
G3ict is currently deploying the Smart City Digital Inclusion Maturity Model © and the Smart University Digital Inclusion Maturity Model© tools as well as the Smart Enterprise Maturity Model through its global partner ecosystem.
If your city, university, or enterprise is interested in defining how it can be both smarter and more inclusive or if your organization or company is interested in partnering with G3ict to make the digital and built environments more inclusive, please contact us at: email@example.com.
