This panel highlights digital government practices that exemplify the dg.o 2021 conference theme: Digital Innovations for Public Values: Inclusive Collaboration and Community. Public values serve as the guiding principles for the development and implementation of digital innovations for public service. Inclusivity is a salient public value to bridge the digital divide in the development, access, and use of information and communication technology. Cases presented in this panel illustrate civic engagement via digital technologies for inclusive collaboration; collaboration between government and residents as well as government, university, and community organizations; and utilization of digital technology to strengthen community at local and national levels. These cases feature projects of the Digital Governance and Analytics Lab at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, the hosting university of dg.o 2021 as well as similar projects done by research collaborators at Florida International University and University of Massachusetts Boston.
