Microsoft taps Randolph County to lead digital skills initiative in Alabama

ROANOKE, Alabama — Microsoft Philanthropies is teaming with the Randolph County Economic Development Authority (RCEDA) on a program that helps job seekers and professionals gain new skills for in-demand roles in the digital economy.

The RCEDA received funding from Microsoft Philanthropies to launch the Community Skills Initiative Alabama Region program. A suite of online training and resources, accessed through the Community Skills Initiative Alabama website, offers access to free online training courses that boost digital skills.

The RCEDA said it is one of only nine organizations across the country to get funding for the program.

“I am beyond excited and grateful for the opportunity to do this work,” RCEDA Executive Director Bryant Whaley said. “We’ve already started to partner with local agencies and businesses to ensure not only are our communities made aware of the CSI program but also that everyone has equal access.”
