Ian Bennett, PwC Australia - Why do you think it’s important that PwC provide volunteering opportunities?
“The skills of the people of PwC are highly valuable to organisations that exist only to do good, but they often don't have the resources to do those things that would significantly increase their impact. With every hour of unskilled volunteering we replace with skilled volunteering, we create genuine meaningful long-term value to society”.
Elizabeth Fritts, PwC Australia - Why do you share your time and skills volunteering?
“I first signed up as a mentor for an Australian Business and Community Network (ABCN) program -- providing long-form mentorship programs to high school students from identified lower socioeconomic high schools, with program content focused on topics such as leadership, STEM, time management, and career preparedness.
The mentor opportunities I've been fortunate enough to be a part of at PwC makes me thankful to work for an organisation that values volunteerism and social impact in its most pure and authentic form. The ABCN truly makes a difference in the community, and its incredible for PwC to be part of that.”
