Build the Skills Ecosystem of Tomorrow

We are a coalition of employers, education providers, policy makers, military, non-profits, and other stakeholders dedicated to advancing skills-based education and hiring.

 

We envision a world where learners and workers are empowered to use their skills as currency - with the ability to understand the value of their achievements - within the employment and education marketplace.

Bridging the Skills Gap

The skills gap is a pressing problem that intersects educators, employers, policy makers, and technology.

The Open Skills Network promotes the answer of a more equitable, skills-driven labor market that matches learners and workers with skills-based education and career opportunities to the benefit of the individual, employer, and economy at large. 

Our work enables workers and learners to move between education and work more rapidly and seamlessly along skills-based pathways. It also reduces historical inequities in hiring as more people are hired for what they can do. Individuals are empowered to understand and communicate the value of their own skills and talent, and employers see that talent and make informed, skills-based hiring decisions for the benefit of all.
