Alongside senior leaders, Mary became one of the PwC Gender Balance Network’s #PressForProgress champions, being featured due to her work supporting and encouraging women in the workplace. She hosts informal lean-in sessions for peers to discuss careers and workplace challenges, and shared her thoughts on being a woman in the corporate world through her blog, A Millennial’s Diary, discussing topics such as Shine Theory. Mary mentored four young women in PwC’s women in business programme, a work experience shadowing programme for female university students. She also co-led the relaunch of the PwC Financial Services Next Generation network which provides a fun environment to share knowledge about financial services in a judgement-free zone. She has used her role as Co-Chair of the Multicultural Business Network (MBN) to recognise the intersectionality of culture and gender, organising the rollout of #IamRemarkable training for 100+ MBN members, a Google initiative that aims to encourage women to speak openly about their accomplishments. Externally, Mary founded and runs a millennial women’s community, Now You’re Talking, which now consists of 250+ predominantly ethnic minority women. The group connects like-minded future leaders to opportunities and resources and organises a wide range of events focused on personal and professional development. She also actively mentors students via the University of Birmingham and the University of Warwick Women in Consulting mentoring schemes to provide career direction and guidance.
