Seminar for High School Educators on Business and Financial Responsibility

PwC and Knowledge@Wharton High School (KWHS) are proud to co-host the first PwC and KWHS Seminar for High School Educators on Business and Financial Responsibility, a three-day, intensive learning experience where educators can deepen their knowledge and teaching skills about financial literacy and business. The September 28-30 seminar on the Philadelphia campus of the Ivy League’s oldest business school is open to 150 public and private high school teachers, principals, administrators and superintendents.

Why You Should Attend:  
As you prepare your students for life-long success, we recognize your desire to increase your knowledge of finance and business. We also know that one-in-five of you report feeling unprepared to teach financial literacy. We are here to help bridge this gap.

KWHS and PwC share a common vision for increasing financial literacy among youth and increasing access to teacher training opportunities. As the largest professional services firm, PwC employs 35,000 people in the U.S. who are skilled professionals in finance and accounting and can leverage their know-how to increase the proficiency in math and financial literacy of our students. KWHS, the latest addition to the Wharton School’s Knowledge@Wharton global network, can leverage its expertise in education and business to promote global financial literacy, entrepreneurship and leadership among high school students and educators.
