Private Sector Efforts to Close the Digital Skill Divide with Dalila Wilson-Scott


Over 90% of jobs require digital skills, but one-third of workers can’t access the foundational digital skills necessary to enter and thrive in today’s jobs. This digital skill divide disproportionately impacts workers of color, low-income individuals, and rural residents. Fortunately, new once-in-a-generation federal investments – along with efforts across the private sector – present an opportunity to close the digital skills divide.   

As part of National Digital Inclusion Week, National Skills Coalition and Business Leaders United are hosting a Fireside Chat with Comcast’s Dalila Wilson-Scott. She will join NSC CEO Andy Van Kleunen and a panel of thought leaders for a dynamic conversation about how private sector leaders – from small local firms to Fortune 500s – are collaborating with community partners to close the digital skill divide and drive a more equitable, inclusive economy. 

Following the discussion, we’ll host a panel discussion response featuring:  

  • Andy Van Kleunen, CEO of National Skills Coalition 
  • Peter Beard, Senior Vice President for Regional Workforce Development, Greater Houston Partnership  
  • Ankur Gopal, CEO and Founder, Interapt   
  • Angela Siefer, Executive Director, National Digital Inclusion Alliance
