At PwC, we recognize the importance of sponsoring initiatives that reflect the core values we feel are essential for responsible businesses. In FY15, we donated $362,000 to post-secondary institutions, and in FY16, we’ll continue to work hard to integrate and sponsor activities that involve students both inside and outside the classroom so they can recognize the value of diversity and inclusion and other responsible business behaviours.
