Young Women Challenge 2020


Young Women Challenge 2020

Sharing innovative ideas to improve gender balance in the working environment

Since 2015, the hugely successful Young Women Challenge has sought to champion female roles in audit, tax, and consulting, providing innovative ideas on how to improve gender balance in the working environment.

Gender parity is a critical challenge — working together reinforces the will to make it possible. That is why the 2020 edition of the Young Women Challenge is open to all, both young women and men.
