Google Partners with HBCUs to Help Job Seekers with Digital Skills: Report

Google recently announced that it will partner with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund to help historically Black colleges and universities close the racial gap in digital skills.

The program will begin next month with four schools — Bowie State University, Virginia State University, Winston-Salem State University and Southern University A&M College — and will eventually expand to all HBCUs by fall 2021, Business Insider reported.

The program aims to help train 20,000 HBCU students, Google said.

The National Skills Coalition reports that 50% of Black job seekers today lack sufficient digital skills, especially glaring as research from the Council on Foreign Relations shows that two-thirds of the 13 million new jobs created in the U.S. since 2010 required medium or advanced levels of digital skills, Business Insider reported.
