Inclusive and Ethical Uses of Digital Identity

In April 2022, DINZ launched a broad-scope members’ Working Group in response to the increasing challenges for some groups in society to participate fully in Aotearoa’s digital transformation, with the aim of providing baseline supporting guidance to inform policy and service design.  

The Digital Identity Services Trust Framework Bill (DISTF) with its requisite design principles is anticipated to provide an accessible and effective digital identity ecosystem that has the potential to unlock a range of opportunities across all parts of society. But can this potential be realised? 

Given its purpose and mission, DINZ will leverage its position and relationships as a community collaborator and partner to provide a mechanism for community members to share their views, knowledge and experience to develop guidance for industry and Government to better ensure that all New Zealanders may take full advantage of the potential benefits of digital identity in future.

Read the Inclusive and Ethical Use of Digital Identity (IEUDI) Working Group’s research and discussion paper on the existing mahi both in New Zealand and around the world in the areas of inclusivity and ethics in digital identity.

We are looking for additional founding members to kick-start the work. Review and share our proposal through your networks.

This Working Group is restricted to DINZ Members.

From February 1st 2022, all DINZ hosted events are subject to its Events Code of Conduct policy. By registering for and attending DINZ DISTF WG meetings, you are acknowledging this Code and its enforcement provisions.
