The New World of Work creates soft skills curriculum and digital badging

Through partnership with the Foundation for California Community Colleges, the New World of Work (NWoW) has developed digital badges for soft skills.

Since 2012, the NWoW has been building a bridge between education and employment by engaging employers, entrepreneurs, human resource professionals, students, and educators and developing a series of skills panels.
