The White House American Workforce Policy Advisory Board has called on the U.S. government and private industry to collaboratively build a technological infrastructure to support future jobs and ground a solid economic rebound from the coronavirus pandemic.

A White House official said the Board aims to help displaced workers find pathways to enhance their existing skills and acquire new ones, in order to move into good careers in recovering sectors as the Covid-19 crisis subsides.

IBM’s Ginni Rometty said, "By rallying around this call to action, leaders in business and government can help more people build skills that lead to good jobs, promote hiring that is based on skills not just degrees, and build a national skills infrastructure to connect workers with opportunities."
