Transcript for Karamo moderates panel on inclusion, education and the workplace of the future
Changing gears now, connecting the innovators of tomorrow. Our sponsored Verizon is preparing the future with a new initiative and it's getting help from a superstar who's got a big heart. Take a look. Are you ready to get this started? Reporter: His big heart. You're playing this broken narrative over and over. During this moment there are a lot of people who are mourning the loss of the life that they thought they would have and that's from their finances to their health to their jobs to their kids' futures. When people feel overwhelmed that's an okay feeling to feel. It means that your body is telling you that right now, you need to find a little bit more time for yourself and you do have the ability to ask for help. Reporter: But he says change for the better can a burden that must be shared. We all have to do the work in ourselves and in our homes, but we also have to look to corporations and say, you have a responsibility to step up and to lead the way in many areas. Reporter: Karamo is teaming up with our sponsored Verizon moderating a panel on inclusion, education and the workplace of the future. Our own primary research showed that youth in middle schools who did not have access to technology were changing their dreams and hopes and view of what they could be. That's completely unacceptable. Reporter: Even before the pandemic Verizon helping to bridges that divide by providing free technology, internet access and education to children in underserved communities through their innovative learning program and now they plan to do even more. As part of their citizen Verizon initiative they're providing 10 million kids with digital access and skills training and planning to reskill half a million unemployed and at-risk workers for jobs of the future. In the fight for the environment they are promising to become carbon neutral by 2035. Verizon isn't going to be a corporation standing on the sidelines. We are going to be a citizen that is engaged in these issues because we want to help change this world for the better and help move it forward. To watch the citizen Verizon event tonight visit "Good morning America's" Twitter page. For more information.
