Build skills for jobs
We're working toward digital equity: a future in which every job seeker, employee looking to grow their career, student preparing for the workplace, and displaced or crisis-affected individual looking to build their livelihood has access to the skills and opportunity to succeed.
Closing the sustainability skills gap
Over 3,500 companies globally have issued climate pledges – however, many lack a workforce with the necessary skills to turn these pledges to progress. Our report shows the urgent need to develop a new level of sustainability skills and fluency – and how we aim to help support the transformation.
Increase access to computer science education
Technology Education and Learning Support (TEALS) connects teachers with tech industry volunteers in the US and British Columbia, Canada to create inclusive, sustainable computer science (CS) programs. To support more equitable access to CS education, we're bringing TEALS to high schools in 21 US cities with high populations of Black and African American Students.
