Virtual/hybrid working models are here to stay in the post-pandemic era. Workforce development programs can better prepare participants by adapting their models to fit with new work standards. Ensuring groups under-represented in tech, such as Indigenous individuals or women, have the tools and skills necessary to overcome the digital divide and gain remote employment can diversify and strengthen our workforce.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Virtual/hybrid programs prepare jobseekers for similar work environments
  • VirtRemote training provides barriered groups employment access wherever they are
  • Diminishing digital divide equips all for opportunities to strengthen economy
