Deloitte Women in Risk Advisory
We imagine new possibilities by connecting trust, resilience, and security to empower the future of risk
We are the Women in Risk Advisory. We solve complex problems and foresee risks. We innovate and analyze. We incubate and referee. We help our clients build resilient, sustainable organizations. We imagine new possibilities, connecting trust, resilience, and security to make an impact that matters. We need more like us. We need more like you.
At the April 2022, the Deloitte Global Risk Advisory team launched the “Deloitte Women in Risk Advisory” campaign around the world. This campaign is an inspiring and informative effort to “change the face of risk advisory,” by bringing awareness to the opportunities that exist in order to recruit an even more diverse workforce. As a start, globally we are sharing the stories of eight women who are just a small sample of the many talented women of Risk Advisory at Deloitte. Our women bring with them a breadth of diversity across all dimensions. They demonstrate every day just how important that diversity is in how we show up and make a lasting positive impact on the world around us. We are very pleased that Mrs. Yvonne Wu from Deloitte China is one of these talented women sharing her story.
Meet Yvonne. She is the national managing partner of Risk Advisory for Deloitte China. In this role, Yvonne wears many hats, providing managerial oversight, acting as a subject matter expert in the life sciences and health care industry, and serving as the lead client service partner for some of Deloitte's most strategic accounts.
For Yvonne, the most exciting part of her work is its dynamism and the innovation it requires. As the business world rapidly changes, so do its associated risks-which means Risk Advisory professionals must address and anticipate risks with flexibility and creativity. Yvonne finds it fulfilling to meet these challenges and deliver value to her clients by developing and offering the best possible solutions for the problems she encounters.
Yvonne's proudest accomplishments include projects in which the services she and her team provided led to success for her clients. She also takes pride in the successes of her colleagues and peers. "Those are the most exciting and proud times I have," she explains, "when I see people grow and make milestone achievements."
In Yvonne's opinion, Risk Advisory is an ideal career field for women. Risk Advisory professionals must be highly flexible, accommodating, and innovative, and must be sensitive to the rapid pace at which the world is changing.
When asked what advice she has for women who hope to pursue work in Risk Advisory services, Yvonne offers a simple answer: "Trust yourself. Be persistent. Don't give up until you achieve your goals."
