Google Announces Pledge to Train 100K Black Women in Digital Skills By 2022

Google continues to build up its pipeline of Black talent with its latest ambitious initiative. Last week, Grow With Google announced that it has established a new initiative to offer digital skills training to 100,000 Black women. This pledge to upskill Black job seekers is part of Google’s $15 million initiative announced back in June. Their goal now is to have these Black women ready to take on the tech industry by Spring 2022. According to a blog post shared by Google’s Chief Diversity Officer, Melonie Parker, this new initiative is also in partnership with six Black women-led organizations — including The Links, Inc., Dress for Success and four sororities of the National Pan-Hellenic Council. We're proud to partner with @linksinc , @dressforsuccess , & four Black sororities ( @akasorority1908 , @dstinc1913 , @ZPHIBHQ & @SGRho ) to bring digital skills training to 100,000 Black women in the U.S. through #GrowWithGoogle ’s Black Women Lead initiative →
