Boeing’s $100M Education Program Takes Flight

June 4, 2018  • UpSkill America

UpSkill America is an employer-led movement to expand opportunity for America’s workers and allow our economy and communities to thrive. As part of our mission to advance the upskilling movement, we are pleased to share the following news featuring one of our partners.

Airplane wingBoeing launched new workforce development programs today, an online network of resources designed to make learning more accessible to employees at all levels of the company. A new partnership with Degreed.com will provide employees with access to online lessons, certification courses and degree programs. The investment will also fund several programs to help employees enhance technical skills and understand industry trends, tools and technologies. Boeing also made a $6 million investment in the future technical workforce through a partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund and several Historically Black Colleges and Universities. The strategic investment will support scholarships, internships and immersive “boot camp” programs to help students experience what it’s like to work at Boeing. The company plans to announce additional employee education investments later this year. Click here to learn more.

We are delighted with Boeing’s decision and commend them for joining a growing list of companies committed to advancing the upskilling movement in 2018.
