PwC, UNICEF and GenU: A Strategic Collaboration

The need to upskill and reskill the workforce has never been more urgent, especially for global youth.

PwC launched a multi-year collaboration with UNICEF in support of Generation Unlimited (GenU), which brings public, private and civil society stakeholders together to help young people build a productive future by acquiring the skills they will need to succeed in the future. We are also leading conversations to understand and ultimately help solve the global skills deficit. We are committed to helping create thriving societies, those that are centered around people who have the skills to drive technology that powers healthy, sustainable economies.
