On April 24, 2015, Cengage Learning participated in the White House Upskill Summit, a gathering of national business and education leaders to focus on efforts to train more front-line American workers.
Among the efforts highlighted as part of the Summit, the Obama Administration announced two new commitments leveraging Cengage Learning’s Career Online High School (COHS), to offer career certificate training and accredited high school diplomas to all eligible U.S. employees at McDonald’s Corporation and Walmart Stores Inc. These partnerships have the potential to change the lives of up to 10,000 front-line workers in the first year. We’re very proud of our participation in these initiatives to equip employees with skills for advancement; our recent announcement provides additional details about Cengage Learning’s expanded commitments to today’s workforce.
