What compelled PwC to support Accessory to a Change 2019?
PwC is proud to support Accessory to Change 2019 as we’re aligned in our goals in developing our female talent through education, sponsorship and mentoring within a supportive network.
Diversity and inclusion are priorities at PwC. We encourage everyone at PwC, as well as our clients to be open-minded to the value that different skills, experiences and perspectives add to solving important problems and achieving goals. We work and nurture professionals with a variety of approaches to problem-solving, who are willing to challenge the status quo, who think differently from one another, and who come from many different backgrounds and cultures.
Tell us about more about PwC and your impact in the world.
At PwC our people walk the talk. Our leaders encourage inclusion and open mindedness every day. Internally, they are champions and externally they are recognized for their impact at PwC and in our community. By investing in initiatives such as global-wide unconscious bias training and our award-winning Women in Leadership program, we address the business imperative of accelerating the development, retention and advancement of high potential women.
Through PwC’s partnership with the United Nations’ HeforShe initiative, we are activating the power of our network to support global gender equality. We’re the only professionals services firm in the world to be an IMPACT 10x10x10 Champion, where 10 Heads of State, 10 University Presidents and 10 global CEOs make gender equality an institutional priority. Specifically we’ve implemented three bold, game-changing commitments to advance and achieve gender equality including:
- A goal of 80,000 men making their HeforShe commitment and driving awareness and action through our employees, clients and within our communities;
- Co-creating with UN Women a Gender IQ E-learn, designed to educate and help understand the issues surrounding gender equality; and
- The launch of a Global Inclusion Index, an evaluation with a specific focus on women, where each PwC territory is able to develop tailored actions to increase women in leadership.
