EMEAR Impact

Real impact and lives changed

The world’s largest and longest-running CSR education program that's empowering all people with career possibilities. 

Workforce development: bridging skills to technology jobs

We lead with our strength in technology to innovate education with our powerful partners who really know education and share our commitment to powering an inclusive future for all.

In today’s digital economy, its benefits are great but can often be unevenly distributed. Our Digital Readiness Index explores how ready countries are to power an inclusive digital future, including opportunities to invest in human capital.

Regardless of the industry or affiliation, our workforce development program equips educators with best-in-class curriculum, resources and tools and students with in-demand industry skills. And we don’t stop there—we connect students with peers, mentors, and real jobs through our job-matching engine, Talent Bridge.
