Firm garners inaugural recognition for national diversity and inclusiveness programs

TORONTO, February 19, 2013– PwC was selected by Mediacorp Canada Inc. as one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers in 2013. This award follows PwC’s most recent acknowledgements for being one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers in 2013 and for being one of Canada’s Top Employers for Youth in 2012.

“Diversity and inclusion is a critical component of PwC’s success and it acts as a guiding principle in the work we do. We’re truly honoured by this recognition,” says Saul Plener, Chief Inclusion Officer, PwC. “Having diversity of thought around the decision-making table, through diverse backgrounds and experiences, moves us from traditional thinking to dynamic and innovative leadership.”

In the past year, PwC has launched a number of new initiatives to enhance its commitment of creating an inclusive environment for its people and to celebrate differences. Some of the recent activities include:

  • Conducted a third-party administered Equitable Leader Assessment with our leadership team
  • Engaged our people through a diversity survey and dialogue to obtain feedback about current inclusion practices at PwC
  • Devised a diversity and inclusion dashboard to measure success

Saul concludes, “The tone must be set from the top – leaders have a huge impact in moving organizations. By keeping diversity and inclusion top of mind – and weaving it into everyday conversations with our clients, people, and communities – it becomes part of how we act and behave.”

Now entering its seventh year, Canada’s Best Diversity Employers celebrates employers across Canada that demonstrates exceptional workplace diversity and inclusiveness programs.
