About CEDC

On June 24, Acting Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel announced that the Commission would re-charter the Advisory Committee on Diversity and Digital Empowerment (ACDDE) under a new name – the Communications Equity and Diversity Council (CEDC). The CEDC’s mission will expand from the ACDDE’s initial focus on the media ecosystem to review more broadly critical diversity and equity issues across the tech sector. The ACDDE was Initially chartered in July 2017, and re-chartered in 2019.

The mission of the CEDC is to make recommendations to the Commission on advancing equity in the provision of and access to digital communication services and products for all people of the United States, without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, or disability. In carrying out this mission, the Committee will make recommendations to the Commission on how to accelerate the deployment of high-speed Internet access, or “broadband,” in all communities by reducing and/or removing regulatory barriers to infrastructure and investment, and by making recommendations on how to strengthen existing broadband networks and develop new ones.

The Committee will also make recommendations to the Commission on how to accelerate the entry of small businesses, including those owned by women and minorities, into the media, digital news and information, and audio and video programming industries, including as owners, suppliers, and employees. This Committee is intended to provide an effective means for stakeholders to exchange ideas and develop recommendations to the Commission on access to capital, small business mentoring, upskilling for employment in media and technology industries, media ownership diversity, and procurement opportunities.
