The White House Upskill Summit today brought together 150 employers, labor leaders, foundations, non-profits, educators and tech innovators from across America who are answering the President’s call to action to equip workers of all ages with the skills they need to advance into better-paying jobs.

Vice President Biden highlighted new commitments being made by these public and private partners.

To support this effort, the White House has released a Fact Sheet that highlights these commitments from leading employers across the nation and new resources that make the case for why these efforts are essential and how companies join in.
