This 2009 report from the Greenlining Institute describes how “digital inequality” creates barriers to access to and use of information and communications technologies for racial and ethnic minorities. Beyond structural issues of a “digital divide”, these barriers further disadvantage these populations as familiarity and skills with such technologies become more essential for success in education, in the workplace and in other daily encounters such as health care. The report includes recommendations for policy changes and practices to reduce these inequalities.
