PwC Is Trying to Get Some Color Up in This Mofo

A special program developed by employees at the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and the nonprofit Diversity Awareness Partnership is teaching youngsters that careers in finance are not strictly for geeks whose work attire consists of starched white shirts and pocket protectors loaded with No. 2 pencils.

The EXPLORE Career Immersion program in accounting began two years ago with the goal of meeting the challenge of growing a diverse workforce in finance and accounting. More than 60 students of color from 12 metropolitan St. Louis public and private high schools completed the fourth session of the program.

“While we hope this program will sway some students to consider the accounting profession, the sessions also offer advice on making the most of their college experience to prepare them for a successful job search after graduation – no matter what profession a student may select,” said  John Tvrdik, PwC’s market managing partner. “We have partnered to develop this invaluable opportunity for high school students in St. Louis as a pipeline to potentially change their futures forever.” [The STL American]
