Closing the divide between those with access to opportunity and those without
We believe that our responsibilities extend beyond our firm and our clients. One of the greatest concerns facing our communities is the growing gap between those with access to opportunity and those without. Through our latest Access Your Potential commitment, we are helping build a more equitable future for Black and Latinx college students.
To help address the opportunity and employment gap, we’ve committed $125M to support a more equitable future for 25,000 Black and Latinx college students to prepare for and begin their careers. Focusing on students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions and community colleges, we’re providing access to high-demand digital and career readiness training and upskilling, mentorship, and pathways towards the start of their careers. As part of our effort to attract more diverse staff to our profession, we aspire to hire 10,000 students over the next five years.
The Access Your Potential curriculum will be enabled by ProEdge, a PwC product, to help students determine the skills they need to be competitive and generate engaging, yet challenging customized learning plans.
Access Your Potential is just one part of our firm’s commitment to help increase societal equity by providing a clear path to career and economic advancement. Our goal is to provide students from all backgrounds to have an equal opportunity to succeed, helping to change students’ trajectories and uplift their communities.
