Women's Day 2014
“Diversity is a key issue for us, which is why we were keen to focus on female millennials. We recruit a rich diversity of talent every year from schools across the world, including thousands of very talented millennial women. We want to think about the environment that will help those women succeed now so that they’re primed for leadership in the future.”
On March 8 each year International Women’s Day is recognised across the globe to celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women. Research and media are currently dominated with a focus on women in leadership and on corporate boards. However, to achieve sustainable change the public and private sectors must change the conversation: they must also focus on developing talented junior women now for future leadership roles.
To do this organisations must first understand how best to attract, retain and develop the female millennial. This is why PwC are marking International Women’s Day this year with the theme Next Generation Diversity: Developing tomorrow’s female leaders.
To support this broader conversation on gender diversity we are launching our Next Generation Diversity report.
