International Women’s Day 2017

To help stimulate a broader conversation on gender diversity, we feel it’s vital that organisations focus on providing inclusive opportunities and experiences to attract, develop and retain talent.

To solve important problems we need diverse talent. So at PwC, we employ people with a vast array of backgrounds and experiences – meaning they think differently from one another and apply varying approaches to problem-solving. And we’re committed to helping every one of them build a rewarding career and achieve their full potential.

Our global diversity journey

Our global diversity journey began ten years ago, when the PwC network of firms first began to focus on a globally consistent approach to diversity as a business imperative and enabler to our international business strategy. Initially, gender diversity was the priority, however this focus was later expanded, putting inclusion front of mind and expanding our dimensions of difference beyond just gender. Our diversity journey was further accelerated as we reframed our strategy including our network diversity priorities, governance and leadership structure.
 

Our approach

We adopt a ‘2+1’ minimum standard approach to tackling the many different dimensions of diversity. PwC has over 208,000 people in 756 locations across 157 countries; 67% of our revenues come from international clients and 50% of our talent is female. These demographics presented a clear proposition for us to identify gender and valuing differences as our two global priority diversity dimensions. Our focus is on creating strategies that focus on these dimensions of diversity, in addition to at least one further dimension of diversity, which is of high local priority.
