The digital divide disproportionately affecting regional and remote Australian Aboriginal communities

Congratulations to DMRC Researchers Dr Jessa Rogers, Dr Amber Marshall, Dr Kim Osman and Dr Thu Pham on their project  “Connecting in the Gulf: Digital Inclusion for Indigenous Families Living on Mornington Island” and release of their final report.

This project explores the impact of digital inclusion challenges for low-income Indigenous families living on Mornington Island, a remote Aboriginal community in the Cape York Peninsula. It was collaboratively developed to explore the  experiences of the Mornington Island community, and to develop a research methodology led by the community, for their needs, toward giving the community voice and power in this research.

This report has been featured today in The Conversation, highlighting the digital divide that disproportionately affects people living in regional Australian communities. Read the full article here.
