2020 January

A Day to Remember, Thanks to PwC

Thanks to Winjie Miao, Foundation board member and Committee Chair of Programs & Services, and Grace Shao, MD (PricewaterhouseCoopers) for making it possible for the YWLA senior class, as well as some YWLA alumnae, to visit PwC’s offices in downtown Dallas.

A Priceless Experience

Tour of PwC

We partner with organizations throughout DFW, and we’re honored to work with people who are as passionate about empowering and educating the next generation of female leaders as we are.

Thanks to new connections and to generous, passionate people, we were able to send YWLA’s senior class of 2020 and some alumnae to tour PricewaterhouseCoopers’ office in downtown Dallas, just steps away from Klyde Warren Park.

Several PwC employees from across the U.S., including Miami and San Francisco, spoke with the girls, explaining what they do at PwC and introducing them to the realm of possible internships and jobs that PwC offers. Each stressed how important it is to have a diverse team (in all senses) in order to be truly innovative.

“We need you even more than you need us.”

– David Clarke, CxO Experience Consulting, Digital & Products Strategy at PwC

We finished out the afternoon with lunch at the PwC cafe and conversation about overall takeaways, topping it off with the YWLA creed.

Shopping for Professional Clothes

Some generous PwC employees even donated money for alumnae to each purchase a professional outfit. We took them to Macy’s, and thanks to our personal shoppers, found clothes for all our girls. With these professional outfits, our alumnae can feel confident in themselves as they interview for jobs and once they enter the work environment after graduation.

We’re grateful to everyone, especially at PwC and Macy’s, who made this experience a successful and inspiring one.
