We are proud that in 2018, 37,000 Washington businesses, website publishers, and nonprofits benefitted from Google tools and that we helped provide $18.6 billion of economic activity for Washington organizations (source). And we know that for many small businesses, learning how to harness the Internet can help them grow their business.
We also recognize the importance of digital skills when searching for a job in Washington. According to the National Skills Coalition, only 44% of state workers are trained to the middle-skill level.
We’re excited to partner with a terrific library and community organizations throughout the state to help Washington job seekers and small businesses learn digital skills.
