Meet Jacob, a senior manager with PwC Canada’s cyber and financial crime practice, specializing in strategy and operations for financial services clients.
After graduating university, Jacob joined PwC Canada as an associate on a two-year program that provided learning experiences across PwC Canada’s core consulting teams. From there, he became a senior associate in the financial services group. His coaches and mentors then suggested he join the cyber, privacy and financial crime team—a budding group that would offer fascinating opportunities. He’s now been with this team for a few years and loves the challenges it provides.
Of all the insights on his journey so far, Jacob has learned to value places and environments that celebrate individuals for who they are. “Spending effort trying to fit in is wasted energy,” he says. “Finding places that allow you to be who you are is a far better use of your time.” Helping to create these safe spaces is just one of the reasons Jacob is actively involved with Shine, PwC Canada’s inclusion network for the LGBTQ2+ community and allies.
In his career and through his work with Shine and the PwC Canada Staff Council, Jacob feels he has been actively supported and encouraged by his PwC Canada mentors, coaches and the leadership team. This has allowed him to be his authentic self at work—and has given him a strong sense of belonging.
“Fostering discussion, bringing strong ideas and working together—that’s how we can solve our biggest challenges”
