Session Abstract: This panel discussion will frame the work underway to actively embed equity in government’s digital identity practices. It will explore industry efforts to foster greater consistency for diversity, equity, and inclusion across service providers. E.O. 13985, Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government, is a call to action to take a systemic approach to embedding fairness in decision-making processes and solutions and to address barriers that create inequitable access, treatment, or outcomes. Today, many segments of the population lack the means to provide a digital identity or face substantial barriers when attempting to prove who they are online — compared to other, more privileged peers. They can be left behind, unable to gain access to needed services or participate in the digital economy. Consideration of equity is now a key aspect of managing risk in developing and deploying digital identity technology. Equity is built into the NIST standards and guidance as a key component. The value of equity, diversity, and inclusion is inherent in the services and solutions relying parties and purchasers are seeking. The Kantara Initiative partners with public and private sector organizations to fully realize the goals of digital identity equity.
