The goal of this event is to open a dialogue and raise awareness of the digital literacy required by the public and private sectors. Attendees will gain insights on what kind of soft and hard skills are in demand and the programs they can utilize to build up these skills. In October 2020, the United Nations and the International Telecommunication Union organized an event entitled “Youth engagement for global action: Digital Skills and the Power of 3P (public, private, people)”. This workshop intends to build off that event and further explore how the necessity to develop digital skills has been exacerbated by both the COVID-19 pandemic and the rapid development of new technologies.
Working from home has become a new normal, and the push for digital literacy is more evident than ever. Companies across many industries have launched digital initiatives to help participants develop digital skills with the understanding that “closing the skills gap is the biggest opportunity of the decade.” IBM, Google, Codecademy, and LinkedIn are just some of many companies that have created programs to help contribute to the development of digital literacy skills.
The event will consist of an interactive virtual dialogue (webinar) with members of academia and employees in the public and private sector, followed by questions from the audience.
