The Pathway to Opportunity is Paved with Skills


The OSN is a collaboration of over 500 employers, higher ed institutions and others who believe in a future in which all individuals have the skills and talent necessary to thrive, and in which their talents are easily signaled to the labor market. The OSN is launching pilots, building open source toolkits, structuring partnerships, and reimagining the future of education and work so that every individual can access opportunity based on what they can do, not where they got their degree.
