The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the digital inequity into sharp focus. The Wiley Digital Skills Gap Index (DSGI) reflects the changing needs and demands of the workplace for all things digital.
Recognizing the need for indicators to measure the extent of digital competence, Wiley’s DSGI is a contribution to bridging the digital divide. It is a planning tool for policymakers, a roadmap for educators and a resource for recruiters to help bridge the digital divide.
The DSGI identifies and evaluates the factors that underpin the pillars of digital strength, resilience, and responsiveness. It highlights and compares performance.
It ranks 134 economies based on a host of global indicators that reflect how advanced and prepared an economy is with the digital skills needed for sustained growth, recovery, and prosperity.
The DSGI encourages corporate, education, and public policy leaders to address the challenges of closing the digital skill gap.
