Evolvin’ Women Announces Partnership With PwC’s Academy
Evolvin’ Women, a social enterprise that enables organisations to offer skill development to unemployed women from rural areas, has added to its expanding group of educational partners with its recent strategic partnership with PwC's Academy.
This strategic partnership aims at developing the employability, including skillsets and mindset of participants enrolled in the 27-month Evolvin’ Women Programme that is designed to develop unemployed women who have had limited access to education and skill training, into the next generation of leaders in the Hospitality Industry.
PwC's Academy in collaboration with Evolvin’ Women will provide participants with a range of professional development courses in Finance, Human Resources, Leadership and Digital skills. These capacity building programmes are based on the best practices of PwC’s global network of firms and the individual experiences of their training experts.
Assia Riccio, Founder of Evolvin’ Women said: “We are delighted to be partnering with a leading education provider such as PwC Academy, a longstanding regional leader in the field. In this fast-paced global economy, exposure to experts and quality education is vital for the success of our participants. With human resources, financial and project management playing an increasingly critical role in every aspect of employment, we know that PwC’s Academy brings together skills in business to help support our participants through successful transformations”.
Amanda Line, PwC Partner and PwC’s Academy Leader and, added: “Thanks to Evolvin’ Women, we have a fantastic opportunity to make a difference to the lives of these young women. We look forward to welcoming the participants and are so excited to be a part of their journey to becoming future business leaders.”
Beginning in March 2020, and over the course of the proceeding 12 months, PwC will be releasing a total of four modules for skills development to the women enrolled. The Evolvin’ Women partnership with PwC’s Academy is setting the bar for how the private sector can actively contribute to the development of rural communities through the advancement of women.
