Hello NCL colleagues,

I'm excited to share with you our brand-new Digital Skills fact sheets by
industry. These are designed for Congress and other policymakers to
understand why there is an urgent need to invest in upskilling through
legislation such as the Digital Equity Act.

(As you know, the Digital Equity Act weaves the role of adult education
providers throughout the legislation, reflecting Senator Murray's
longstanding expertise in WIOA given her role on the HELP Committee.)

*Please feel free to use and share these fact sheets in your own advocacy. *You
can borrow the statistics or charts used in them, or adapt the language and
recommendations for your own purposes. Just credit "Source: National Skills
Coalition" if you use these in your own materials.

I hope these are helpful--

-Amanda

Digital Equity is vital for an inclusive economic recovery

Dear Amanda,

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many businesses to fast forward through 10
years of technological change at lightning speed. This accelerated adoption
of new digital technologies has affected workers and businesses across
sectors – from retail to manufacturing; from healthcare to construction. To
succeed on the job, workers at every level must have flexible, adapt­able
digital skills that equip them to use new tools.

But federal policy is lagging behind reality on the ground. That’s why
we urgently need to modernize public investments in digital upskilling and
reskilling to equip businesses and workers for today’s digital demands. And
it’s why we’re urging Congress to pass the bipartisan Digital Equity Act
and invest in new Digital Literacy Upskilling Grants as part of any
infrastructure or economic recovery investment.

Those are two of the recommendations NSC makes in Digital Equity for an
Inclusive Economic Recovery

a new series of fact sheets, sponsored by Microsoft.  The fact sheets
explore how federal policy and public investment can equip businesses and
workers for today’s digital demands in four sectors: retail and
hospitality; manufacturing; health & social work; and construction and
transportation.

Dear Amanda,

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many businesses to fast forward through 10 years of technological change at lightning speed. This accelerated adoption of new digital technologies has affected workers and businesses across sectors – from retail to manufacturing; from healthcare to construction. To succeed on the job, workers at every level must have flexible, adapt­able digital skills that equip them to use new tools.

 

But federal policy is lagging behind reality on the ground. That’s why we urgently need to modernize public investments in digital upskilling and reskilling to equip businesses and workers for today’s digital demands. And it’s why we’re urging Congress to pass the bipartisan Digital Equity Act and invest in new Digital Literacy Upskilling Grants as part of any infrastructure or economic recovery investment.

 

Those are two of the recommendations NSC makes in https://click.everyaction.com/k/32763809/296791806/247120092?nvep=ew0KICAiVGVuYW50VXJpIjogIm5ncHZhbjovL3Zhbi9FQS9FQTAwMi8xLzY0MTY2IiwNCiAgIkRpc3RyaWJ1dGlvblVuaXF1ZUlkIjogImRjMmJlMDBhLTVhZWEtZWIxMS1hN2FkLTUwMWFjNTdiOGZhNyIsDQogICJFbWFpbEFkZHJlc3MiOiAiYW1hbmRhYnNAbmF0aW9uYWxza2lsbHNjb2FsaXRpb24ub3JnIg0KfQ%3D%3D&hmac=UjQsa2RMdzUq1Mj7irKQWZRp9kd3pj_-XlXtaWDHjb0=&emci=6ccfbb0e-3aea-eb11-a7ad-501ac57b8fa7&emdi=dc2be00a-5aea-eb11-a7ad-501ac57b8fa7&ceid=2675680 a new series of fact sheets, sponsored by Microsoft.  The fact sheets explore how federal policy and public investment can equip businesses and workers for today’s digital demands in four sectors: retail and hospitality; manufacturing; health & social work; and construction and transportation.

These are designed for Congress and other policymakers to understand why there is an urgent need to invest in upskilling through legislation such as the Digital Equity Act.  (As you know, the Digital Equity Act weaves the role of adult education providers throughout the legislation, reflecting Senator Murray's longstanding expertise in WIOA given her role on the HELP Committee.) https://www.nationalskillscoalition.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/7.16-NSC-digitafactsheet_manufacturing.pdf https://www.nationalskillscoalition.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/7.20-NSC-digitafactsheet_hospitality.pdf https://www.nationalskillscoalition.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/7.16-NSC-digitafactsheet_health.pdf https://www.nationalskillscoalition.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/7.20-NSC-digitalfactsheet_construction.pdf Please feel free to use and share these fact sheets in your own advocacy.
