About the Seminar

Since September 2012, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC US) and Knowledge@Wharton High School (KWHS) have hosted the PwC-KWHS Seminar for High School Educators on Business and Financial Responsibility. The purpose of the biannual, three-day training seminars is to deepen high school educators’ subject-matter knowledge of how to effectively teach basic, yet critical, business and financial skills that students need to thrive.

The seminars serve as valuable networking and idea-sharing opportunities for teachers looking to accelerate their students’ financial capability and business acumen. To date, the seminar has strengthened the financial literacy teaching skills of more than 600 educators across the U.S.

PwC US, a Delaware limited liability partnership, and KWHS share a common vision for improving the financial literacy of today’s young people and increasing access to teacher training opportunities. A leading professional services firm, PwC US is committed to leveraging the skills of its more than 39,000 employees to help raise students’ proficiency in math and financial literacy through its Earn Your Future commitment. KWHS, an initiative of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, can leverage its expertise in education and business and its vast collection of classroom resources, including articles and lesson plans, to promote global financial literacy, entrepreneurship and leadership among high school students and educators.
