The Open Skills Network (OSN) is a coalition of employers, education providers, military, and other stakeholders dedicated to advancing skills-based education and hiring. The OSN envisions a world where individuals are trained for in-demand skills and hired for what they can do.  The OSN is working to develop and implement a common skills language and will help establish a decentralized network of open, accessible, machine-actionable skills libraries.  This webinar will provide insights from diverse stakeholders for why the cybersecurity education, training, and workforce development community is uniquely poised to help empower learners to more rapidly and seamlessly move between education and work along a skills-based career pathway.
