SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- Microsoft announced on Thursday new programs and events of cooperation with the U.S. state of Texas to address the need for digital and technical skills in the workforce.

Microsoft will support Texas' technology advancement and invest in workforce development, student programming and education as part of the "Accelerate" initiative, the announcement said.

The effort, in collaboration with the Texas Education Agency, will provide digital skills through the Microsoft Accelerate initiative, designed to address economic recovery through skilling both underserved communities and re-skilling Americans impacted by COVID-19.

"The expansion of our Accelerate program to the state of Texas is an unparalleled opportunity to speed up the local economic recovery and bring critical digital skills to Texans," said Kate Johnson, president of Microsoft U.S.

"We hope this program will be a transformative opportunity for students, teachers, workers and the entire community," she added.
