Join Microsoft on Tuesday, April 9th as we stream LIVE the Spring US CIO Summit Event. Available virtually for the first time, full day sessions will be streamed during the in-person CIO Summit taking place at the Microsoft Campus in Redmond, WA.
The US CIO Summit focuses on the role of the CIO as business leader, innovator, and contributor to creating new revenue streams. You will learn about global trends, innovations, and solutions that help you reduce costs, drive revenue and profit growth, and ultimately thrive in a changing economic landscape.
In this hybrid event, you’ll see live session presentations, including bonus material not available to the in-person audience. Watch live, backstage and behind-the-scenes interviews with leading solution experts and special guests. Virtual attendees will also have the chance to download related session materials, share ideas and ask questions to Microsoft Experts and Executives through live chat rooms, Twitter and Q&A sessions.
I just ran across a wonderful video filled with amazing folks who explain why learning to code is important for everyone. According to the video, 1 million of the best jobs in America may go unfilled because only 1 in 10 schools teach students how to code.
“It’s the closest thing we have to a superpower”
Share this video and ask your local schools if they offer a coding class for their students.
The world stands at a crossroads. While there are more young people on the planet than ever before, youth unemployment is double that of the adult population. Countries are struggling to develop modern workforces due to the growing gap between the skills of unemployed workers and the skills needed to perform the jobs of today and tomorrow.
Today’s young people face an opportunity divide – a gap between those who have the access, skills and opportunities to be successful and those who do not. Closing this opportunity divide is one of the most important actions we can all take to secure the future of our youth and the future of our global economy.
Microsoft YouthSpark is a companywide initiative designed to create opportunities for hundreds of millions of youth around the world. Through partnerships with governments, nonprofits and businesses, we aim to empower youth to imagine and realize their full potential by connecting them with greater education, employment, and entrepreneurship opportunities. We want to empower youth to change their world.
