About the Partner Pledge
Microsoft fully recognises the impact of the transformative technologies that it has helped implement within the UK. Cloud computing, AI and digital workplace technologies are some examples of how Microsoft has helped shape the digital world we live in. Although Microsoft is optimistic about the beneficial role that technology can play in societal development, it also appreciates and is mindful of the potential consequences of the technological revolution which we are currently experiencing.
Microsoft believes that nations must adopt technology ethically, and strive to ensure that a diverse workforce is fully equipped with the right skills to maximise the technological opportunities of the future.
The UK is currently facing a skills crisis, with too few people entering the workforce with the required digital and technical skills. Not only do we need more skilled workers, but more diversity is also required in the workforce and we need to move to a lifelong learning culture within the UK.
Due to these challenges and opportunities, we are proud to sign the Partner Pledge to join Microsoft and commit to this shared vision of opportunity and responsibility as we shape the future through technology.
