PwC started priming its future workforce by inviting female college students to participate in a forum on women’sin April.
The New York-based accounting and consulting firm’s first such forum for students included multilingual workshops designed to give university students and new professionals tools to help them build leadership skills.
Students from Africa, Asia, Latin America and the United States were given tips for finding the right job, negotiating their first salary and succeeding in their careers.
According to PwC’s Terri McClements, “The first steps into a professional career are critical, and there are many important decisions that must be made. Through this event, we aim to ... equip [the next generation of women leaders] with information and skills that will help in navigating the transition.”
PwC is planning follow-up workshops that will take place this fall.
