Valuing Differences

To move the dial on diversity at PwC we want to focus on valuing differences in the broadest sense. We encourage everyone at PwC and our clients to be open-minded to the value that different skills, experiences and perspectives add to our business. The greatest barrier relates to the natural tendency we all have to gravitate to people like ourselves— often people with the same experiences and perspectives.

Open Minds

Our award-winning online training on open-mindedness

Reducing unconscious bias creates a more fair and inclusive environment. To help our people better understand their unconscious biases and move from understanding to action by becoming inclusion champions, we offer a wide range of tools.

Understanding blind spots

Experts tell us that our unconscious mind makes a majority of our decisions. It creates blind spots—unconscious biases that can narrow your vision and potentially influence your behaviors.

Discussion guide

Challenge assumptions

Our brains are wired to make assumptions, which can sometimes be off base. We think it’s an honest mistake; science calls it a blind spot.

Enhance objectivity

First impressions can block objectivity, which can cause missed opportunities. Sometimes wanting to be “right” can take us in the wrong direction.

Overcome stereotypes

Stereotypes can influence our perception of who’s the “right fit.” They may create a road block towards our destination.

Broaden perspectives

It’s natural to gravitate towards people who are like us. But making decisions solely on who we’re comfortable with can cause tunnel vision.
