Sourcing Talent

October 2, 2015 11:37 am

Alexa Merschel PwC has had significant results in sourcing young talent from under-represented racial/ethnic groups. Alexa Merschel shares those results in her presentation — Sourcing Talent.

In the accounting profession, new hires are based on what’s available in the labor pool. For example, if 22 percent of accountants are Black and Latino, company hires at least 14 percent Black and Latino accounting college graduates.

Merschel’s presentation also taps into specific college-recruitment programs (and results), such as Start, aimed at Black, Latino and Native American freshman; and Explore, a one-day introduction to the profession.
