National Skills Coalition Presents — From Theory to Reality: How Skills Advocates Are Advancing Digital Skills Policy

There’s lots of conversation about digital skills, but how are workforce and education advocates actually tackling this issue on the ground? In this Summit Sequel, hear directly from state and local leaders about how they’ve advanced new policies that measure digital skills and create more equitable upskilling pathways for workers in frontline jobs. Find out how advocates have created digital upskilling programs that meet worker need and business demand. You’ll also get the latest updates on federal digital skills policy – including how the field can ensure the rollout of $2.75 billion Digital Equity Act investment helps close equity gaps, and upcoming opportunities to ensure that Congress incorporates digital skills into legislation such as the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, higher education bills, and new investments in industry-specific skills.
