Digital Tools to Curate and Connect with Others

The Internet, tailored to you.

This year at The Webbys, we’re celebrating online connection and the ways it supports and uplifts us during challenging times. From keeping in touch with colleagues on Slack to discovering new communities on social media and more, the Internet isn’t just a tool for communicating—it’s an essential lifeline, and a platform for advocacy and activism, too.

We’ve honored many powerful community-centric projects over the years at The Webbys. Here, we’ve highlighted three standout picks, including a past Webby Winner and projects launched by IADAS member Naj Austin and Jameela Jamil, the host of this year’s Webby Awards show.
