PwC: Business and Financial Responsibility Training Seminar
July 31, 2012
By Rob Starr, Content Manager, Big4.com
All-expenses-paid financial literacy conference for 150 educators will be held Sept. 28-30 on the Philadelphia campus of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School.
The PwC-KWHS Seminar for High School Educators on Business and Financial Responsibility was recently announced.
The seminar will help fill a major education gap by providing a professional-development opportunity for teachers, principals and superintendents to deepen their subject-matter knowledge of several topics. They include stocks and investing, marketing/branding, leadership and entrepreneurship, negotiation, sustainability and career planning. The seminar also will equip attendees with financial literacy curricula to use in their classrooms. Participants will receive a certificate of completion from Knowledge@Wharton.
Attendance will be limited to 150 educators, including public and private high school teachers, principals, administrators and superintendents. KWHS and PwC are covering event costs, including transportation, hotel accommodations, meals, teaching sessions and conference materials. Teachers from all states are welcome to apply, including those from the 13 states that require financial literacy curricula as a high school graduation requirement (Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Missouri, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia and West Virginia).
Shannon Schuyler, PwC’s corporate responsibility leader comments:
“As a leading professional services firm, we have a vested responsibility and commitment to helping bolster the financial competency of today’s youth,” she said. “These skill sets are critical to our long-term economic stability and competitiveness. Through this seminar, we hope to equip educators with the tools they need to teach financial literacy to their students.”
