So on Thursday Google CEO Sundar Pichai launched an initiative that would train 250,000 Americans over the next five years to learn technology skills. He made the announcement alongside Ivanka Trump in Dallas.
Sundar Pichai and Ivanka Trump partners together
According to Pichai, Google is gonna be signing a pledge to American workers, this is an effort by the White House to “expand programs that educate, train and reskill American workers from high-school age to near-retirement.”
According to Ivanka Trump “our goal, through this pledge, is to fill those opportunities with the next generation of talent.”
If we could recall sometime in 2017 Google pledged a whooping $1 billion to help prepare workers for tech jobs.
Google is currently under investigations by the Department of Justice (DOJ) for an alleged anticompetitive behaviour. So this partnership with the White House should help them strengthen their relationship.
