Every day, I work with companies to think differently about re-skilling and upskilling people in their orgs. According to the World Economic Forum; as jobs are transformed by the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, we need to reskill more than 1 billion people by 2030. When I look at the report, it really speaks to me that emerging skills are increasingly around Data, AI, Cloud Computing, and more. This means we need to focus not only on upskilling and reskilling people in the workforce today, but we NEED to focus on developing the skills of our children to prepare them for a digitally transformed workforce.
www.Code.org is doing this work. I hope you all will pass this along to parents and kids to help them understand that coding can be fun and it will lead to some really interesting careers in the future.
