Skills it Forward
A content-driven campaign led by the AIIA – members and the broader community share their stories about the workforce of the future, graduates, skills and STEM Education; through featured content as role models and STEM champions.
“The nature of work is changing…Australia needs to build capability for a 21st century global economy that is driven by data, digital technologies and innovation. This requires an appropriately skilled workforce that can ‘create’ not just ‘use’ technology.” – AIIA Skills Policy Position Statement 2016
For a small production fee, participating partners will video a short overarching narrative as a partner in the Skill it Forward campaign. This umbrella branding elevates individual partner messages, while building a libary that showcases the commitment, leadership and investment of the industry to foster the workforce of tomorrow.
Partners may also contribute existing materials, programs and content to be showcased in a curated Skill it Forward library – promoted to Industry, Government, media and they broader community – helping to improve accessibility to existing materials and highlight new investment support for skills and STEM education.
Skill it Forward is an AIIA initiative, proudly supported by OK RDY – a start up helping companies automate, scale and optimise their CSR, mentoring and emerging talent programs through recommendations and data analytics.
