Notarize Celebrates National Digital Inclusion Week

Over the past year and a half, the pandemic has clarified just how important access to digital services is. While so many of us were working remotely or in quarantine, digital services helped keep our everyday business and personal lives going, and helped many of us maintain our safety and well-being.

Access to digital services, like Notarize, has become increasingly important as we transition into a more remote lifestyle and as organizations strive to create more accessible and flexible environments.

As we move into the future, we need to continue to advocate for vulnerable communities at risk of being left behind. Those who lack access to high-speed broadband, digital literacy programs, or affordable smart devices are at a greater risk of being left out of the future, further exacerbating the negative impacts of the digital divide.

To raise awareness, the National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA) is hosting Digital Inclusion Week this week (October 4 - October 8, 2021) to recognize and promote digital equity across the country. NDIA is working to raise awareness for digital equity projects across the spectrum - ranging from home internet access, digital literacy programs, access to devices, and more.

At Notarize, one of the core values we believe in is SOLVING PROBLEMS THAT MATTER, and we are committed to doing our part to Bridge the Digital Divide. We are proud to support Digital Inclusion Week, not only this week, but every day as our organization works to increase access to important digital services.

One way Notarize is using digital services to solve problems that matter is through our work with Windermere Real Estate to remove racist language from property titles. Today, we continue to offer complimentary notarizations for homeowners looking to strike this language from their property titles in California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, and Washington. This is a small but important way we are using digital services to solve a long-standing issue in housing.

Notarize believes that all communities should have equal access to digital services, and we’re committed to educating our employees, the communities we serve, and our partners about the importance of this mission. 

Notarize applauds NDIA for its leadership and for raising awareness for this important issue through Digital Inclusion Week. We look forward to continuing to build on this work and our efforts to bridge the digital divide.
