The PwC Diversity Journey
Creating impact, achieving results
At PwC, diversity and inclusiveness are huge priorities for us around the world. To have impact and serve our communities, our stakeholders and our clients, we need diverse talent. To solve the problems our stakeholders are facing, we need diverse talent. To build trust across different points of view, we need diverse talent. It’s imperative we attract, retain and develop diverse professionals to spur innovation, drive growth and sustain competitive advantage in the marketplace.
Our global diversity journey formally began 12 years ago, when PwC first began to focus on developing a globally consistent approach to diversity as a business imperative and enabler for our strategy. During the years since then we’ve experienced many high-points and encountered just as many challenges. And while we’re proud of the progress we’ve made so far, we recognise that our journey is not complete, and it has been slower than we would have liked. We still have so much more we want to do to foster an even more diverse and inclusive workplace culture.
In this report, we share with you the story of our global diversity journey. I hope that by sharing our experiences, challenges and insights, we will learn from and engage with others about their own diversity and inclusion journeys. No one organisation has the sole right answer — and we hope that by sharing our thinking, we will learn from others, knowing the best ideas come from having many voices in the conversation.
