My (Giving) Back Story

Christine (Sorge) Freyermuth ’94 ● Partner — PricewaterhouseCoopers ● Needham, Massachusetts

As the lead recruiter for PwC at Bentley, you’re on campus frequently to interview students. What motivates you in the search for new talent?

Being the firm relationship partner for PwC at Bentley University is truly an honor. I want to leave a legacy of hiring a diverse group of top talent from campus, and help make sure both PwC and Bentley alumni are positioned for future growth and success.

 

PwC is the lead corporate sponsor of the Center for Women and Business. Why is women’s leadership important to you?

I want to do everything I can to ensure other women benefit from the same level of support I received while working to reach my potential as a female business leader. For me, this includes joining my fellow female partners who lead a group called AWARE [Advancing Women by Attracting, Retaining and Empowering]. AWARE is focused on helping PwC retain female talent at all levels, and breaking the glass ceiling by strengthening the pipeline and pathway to leadership.

On a more personal level, PwC has supported me throughout my career — during my transition to motherhood and as I worked to identify a proper work–life balance. In fact, I made partner the same year that I had my fourth child. I want other women to know that you can do it all. There’s a lot of juggling and coordination involved, but anything is possible.     

Why is giving back to Bentley important to you?

I am eternally grateful for the outstanding professors who helped shape my mind and business acumen years ago, and I give back because I want others to receive those same benefits. Staying connected to the network of individuals within the alumni community is also something I greatly value.
