Some time last year during the heat of the pandemic, Microsoft launched a global skills initiative aimed at bringing more digital skills to 25 million people worldwide. The initiative combines existing and new resources from LinkedIn, GitHub, and Microsoft.

It is grounded in 3 areas of activity:
(1) The use of data to identify in-demand jobs and the skills needed to fill them;
(2) Free access to learning paths and content to help people develop the skills these positions require;
(3) Low-cost certifications and free job-seeking tools to help people who develop these skills pursue new jobs.
