PricewaterhouseCoopers, commonly known as PwC, is one of the largest professional services networks in the world. And as millions of American veterans return to the civilian workforce after more than a decade of intense warfare, PwC, like countless other companies and enterprises, has expressed a commitment to incorporating modern veterans into their business model.


PwC has nearly 200,000 employees worldwide, so its commitment to integrating modern veterans is no small feat. It has manifested itself through partnerships with companies like Hirepurpose, which works with PwC to place incredible military talent into its many job vacancies.

But PwC has further taken a multidimensional approach that makes use of modern technology and has a broad reach across the digital spectrum. One such dimension includes a webinar slated for later this week, open to the entire military and veterans community.

The webinar has been dubbed as “an introduction to the professional services network,” and will provide advice for how military members can tackle the transition process and how veterans can find careers within the company.

“As a firm, we’re proud to share the same values and commitment to leadership that our veterans bring to PwC,” the company said in its event invitation, “because in today’s marketplace, we know it’s experience that counts.”

The webinar is Wednesday, July 16, from noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, and will be available here at the time of the event.

The Distinguished Service Cross was made for guys like Sgt. Daniel Cowart, who literally tackled and "engaged...in hand to hand combat" a man wearing a suicide vest while he was on patrol in Iraq.

So it's no wonder he's having his Silver Star upgraded to the second-highest military award.
