Microsoft, Chicago team up to provide digital skills training

Microsoft will provide free digital-skills training courses for at least 300,000 Chicagoans through a new economic development program announced. The new program, called “Accelerate Chicago,” is designed to boost the employability of residents who either lost their jobs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic or those with few digital skills, and will provide “cross-training” for residents trying to switch career paths, according to the company. In Chicago, local branches of the NAACP, as well as other community organizations, will encourage their members to sign up for the free Microsoft courses, and residents will be able to take the courses at local technology and digital skills academies throughout the city. The program builds on similar partnerships between Microsoft and other cities, like Atlanta, Houston, New York and Louisville. Ryan Johnston has more on StateScoop.
