Microsoft Digital livestream event JUNE 30th

June 29, 2020 · upskilling people to prepare them for jobs

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted millions of jobs and accelerated the trend toward increased digitization of work. As economies start to reopen, many individuals will need new skills to return to work or to pursue new jobs and opportunities.   

 As organizations of all sizes consider how best to work in this environment, we’ll see increasing use of digital technology and therefore a stronger demand for digital skills. This includes not just technical jobs, but also the increasing number of jobs that are becoming ‘tech-enabled’.  Across almost every industry—including retail, manufacturing, education, health, and telemedicine—organizations are looking to use digital technology in new ways so they can continue to serve their customers and deliver services.  

Microsoft and LinkedIn are committed to empowering people to get the skills they need to succeed as the economy changes. Helping everyone—wherever they are starting from—more easily develop these skills is essential to supporting an inclusive economic recovery. 

Join us to watch  a special, global online event on  Tuesday, June 30th  at 11:00 AM ET / 8:00 AM PT  to hear from Microsoft CEO  Satya Nadella and President  Brad Smith, as well as incoming LinkedIn CEO  Ryan  Roslansky  and corporate vice  president  Charlotte  Yarkoni as they  share more about the challenges we collectively face and our plan to help.     

As Project>Login Program Director I will tune in on Tuesday and hope you can join me. Rest assured we'll continue to update you with additional information. You can expect us to follow up after the launch.
