U.S. and West Cluster Transformation Leader for Human Capital at PricewaterhouseCoopers Anne Donovan will give a talk entitled “Diversity and Millennials: Politically Correct or Sound Business Strategy?” from 6–7 p.m. in North Business College Complex room N100 on October 23. The lecture will discuss not only generational differences, but also every kind of diversity in the workplace, including race, age, gender, and sexual orientation. Anne Donovan’s expertise in understanding the future generation of workers is widely recognized. She led PwC’s NextGen global study, which looked at how millennials see and impact the workplace.
Donovan has an extensive background in human capital issues from nearly 30 years of experience at PwC in a variety of roles in client service, operations, diversity and firm strategy. She has been the recipient of the PwC Chairman’s Award, the top honor in the firm, for her work creating and implementing the PwC’s diversity strategy. With the help of PwC’s Office of Diversity, she created the Black Professionals Forum to address the challenges of minorities at PwC. Donovan later drew from this experience to develop PwC’s first Latino and GLBT (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender) forums.
The lecture is jointly presented by the Broad Student Senate and the Broad College. PwC also will be giving away an iPad in a raffle at the event.
