Finding a way to show that tech fluency matters is also important. Jenn shared that in addition to the data that shows the success of VMware’s tech literacy program, she likes to analyze the opportunities it created.
“I can talk about the number of people who have gone through these reskilling and upskilling programs,” she said. “But what’s really important for me, my team, and my leadership is showing the opportunities that were created.”
Last but not least, panelists advised having grace for yourself when setting out with such a big goal. Driving digital literacy across an organization will be a long journey. Embrace it. Start early; start now. Build a strong team of partners you can lead with, then host pre-mortems to discuss potential obstacles and milestones. Most importantly, celebrate the wins.
