The journey of the team “Mind Benders” in PwC’s Career Plus Challenge was great and fulfilling. Being the leader of this team of talented individuals helped me to grow a lot. The Challenge provided us with a great platform to build and showcase our knowledge. It also gave us insights on how the work culture would transform and how GenZ would be the epicenter of change. Special thanks to PwC and our mentor, Ms. Berreta, who provided full support to our team throughout the Challenge.

PwC’s Career Plus Challenge provided us with the opportunity to understand the key differences between GenZ and other generations and the way that GenZ would change the future workplace environment. It also enabled me and my teammates to expand our knowledge and to grow as researchers, presenters and leaders. It was definitely a beyond exciting journey and an extremely enriching experience.
