Over the past three months, over 10 million learners worldwide have gained new digital skills as part of Microsoft, LinkedIn and GitHub’s global skills initiative.
The ambitious program was launched in June to provide access to digital skills for those experiencing economic impact caused by COVID-19.
By reskilling workers impacted by COVID-19, Microsoft will continue to promote career development in the digital economy to help build a diverse and successful workforce in Canada and around the world.
