Microsoft reaches 10 million learners through digital skills initiative

Microsoft has reached over 10 million learners through its digital skills initiative launched in July 2020. The project, which was developed in collaboration with LinkedIn and GitHub, has helped users access popular learning resources in topics including software development, customer service and data analytics.

The initiative was launched with the aim of helping 25 million people worldwide gain more digital skills in 2020. Of the 10 million learners reached so far, 1.5 million are in the Asia Pacific.

Microsoft says that by bringing new digital skills to underserved populations and reskilling those impacted by Covid-19, the company will continue to help build the diverse workforce of the future.

“It’s exciting to see the great progress we have made towards helping job seekers get the skills they need to land their next job,” said Olivier Legrand, Asia Pacific managing director of LinkedIn.
