Through New Skills at Work, our five-year $250 million global initiative, we are leveraging our resources, expertise, and global reach to help inform and accelerate efforts to support demand-driven skills training for adults. Additionally, we launched a program to expand skills–based education for young people — New Skills For Youth is a $75 million program to help solve the youth unemployment crisis.

And more than 50% of global CEOs are concerned that a key skills gap could limit their growth prospects.footnote 1 What can we do to ensure that people are trained and competitive for the skilled jobs of the 21st century?
