IBM Pledges to Reskill 30 Million People by 2030

By Clare McDonald

IBM has pledged to give 30 million people worldwide new technology-based skills by 2030 through local partnerships with education providers, government departments and other organisations across 30 countries.

In a bid to ensure people of all ages have the skills needed for future roles, the tech firm will use both new and existing programmes alongside partner organisations to teach people a variety of skills, including technical skills and workplace-ready skills.

IBM chairman and CEO Arvind Krishna pointed out that training opportunities in the tech sector are not always accessible to everyone.
