Corporate Responsibility

At PwC we believe in being 'part of it'—part of the global conversation and movement towards responsible business practices that create positive change in the world.

We have many capabilities that are relevant to CR—the same ones we use in our businesses every day—and we aim to put these to use working with others to make a difference.

See how you can be part of it
Through our own CR agenda, we can be part of the solution to global challenges in two ways:

  1. Doing the right thing means playing our part on responsible business issues that are central to our business—from the quality of our services and the diversity of our people, to our engagement with communities and our environmental footprint.
  2. Being a catalyst for change is about using our skills, voice and relationships to work with others and influence activities that make a difference, create change and have a lasting impact on the world around us.

This forms the core of our global CR Strategy. Across the PwC network, our firms support these network-wide goals. To align and structure our CR activities across this network, we focus on four areas in which PwC people across the world can play their part: responsible business practices; people, diversity and inclusion; community engagement and environmental stewardship. Our actions around these areas are included in our day-to-day operations.

Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion at PwC is about recognizing, respecting and valuing the diverse talents of our people and leveraging that diversity to deliver the highest value for our people and our clients.

To remain one of the world's leading professional services networks, we need the best talent to serve clients. Having diversity of thought around the decision making table, through diverse backgrounds and experiences, moves us from traditional thinking to truly dynamic and innovative leadership. Our employee resource circles, such as Women Upfront, Black Professionals or GLEE (Gay, Lesbian & Everyone Else), provide a forum for peers and mentors to share experiences, discuss professional opportunities and challenges, as well as network.

We are dedicated to creating an understanding, accepting and supportive workplace for all our people. Our vision is to foster a fair and equitable environment that embraces different ideas, perspectives and experiences, and where all of our people can develop to their full potential regardless of background or personal circumstances. Our commitment is to leverage the richness of our talents to drive greater performance at our clients, at our firm and in our communities. Some examples include:

  • PwC is a founding 10x10x10 IMPACT Champion for HeForShe. This makes our firm one of the first 10 corporations around the world to stand by gender equity globally. Find out more about how you can get involved.
  • Our GLEE circle hosts the firm’s LGBT Pride celebrations across Canada, engaging more than 400 employees, allies and clients.
  • Our Black Professionals Circle hosted a series of roundtable discussions about career development workplace diversity opportunities. They also presented their thoughts on a National PwC webinar for clients.
  • Our Early Career Professionals Group recently hosted career development workshops and a speaker series on becoming an effective leader.
  • Our Women in Leadership circle in Montreal created a networking group for women in mining helping to strengthen relationships between emerging leaders in Quebec.

We strive to recognize the value of each and every one of our people. We also recognize and support religious diversity, generational diversity and encourage flexible working arrangements in order to accommodate the diversity of our people’s outside work commitments and their family life.
