Fostering an environment where people with disabilities can thrive

Our Disability Inclusion driver for change

Bringing Disability Inclusion to the forefront

Our goal of building a more diverse community of solvers presents the opportunity to better include people with disabilities and those who care for them. We are committed to fostering an environment where people with disabilities are included, feel empowered to be themselves and have access to the support and adjustments they need to thrive. 

In 2020, PwC’s Global Chairman, Bob Moritz, and a number of Territory Senior Partners (TSPs) became signatories of the Valuable 500, a global movement putting disability on the business leadership agenda. As part of this, PwC made a commitment to appoint a Global Disability Leader to drive accelerated and lasting change across the network. In September 2021, Leandro Camilo, a Partner, and the Inclusion & Diversity Leader, PwC Brazil, was appointed. Learn more about Leandro and his commitment to Disability Inclusion.

In 2022, we released our network's first Global Disability Inclusion Strategy, focussed on enhancing the lives of people with disabilities at PwC and those who have caring responsibilities, as well as people in the wider communities in which we work. This strategy articulates our vision and the areas we will focus on to drive change across the network. All member firms will be asked to take a minimum level of action over the next three years.

The six areas of strategic focus: leadership commitment, talent and representation, culture of awareness, adjustments and support,. data and self-identification, accessibility

Celebrating Disability Inclusion

International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) 2023

IDPD aims to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society. 

At PwC, we are committed to fostering an environment where people with disabilities are included, feel empowered to be themselves and have access to the support and adjustments they need to thrive. 

This year, we are marking IDPD by raising up and amplifying the voices of our leaders and talent with disabilities. We’re doing this over two days and four accessible global events that, combined, will share the voices of 17 PwC people with disabilities from across the world. These events will provide a platform for our diversity role models to share their unique lived experiences and create an enhanced culture of Disability Inclusion awareness with our people.

On IDPD, and every day, we are committed to continuing to make Disability Inclusion progress. Be inspired by learning more about the experiences of our people with disabilities and our disability programmes across the network by scrolling down to visit our solver and solution profiles.

Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) 2024

GAAD, aims to raise awareness of digital access and inclusion. Its overarching message is that someone with a disability should be able to experience web-based services, content and other digital products with the same successful outcome as those without disabilities. 

By working together within our network, we are striving to foster and build a future where people with disabilities are fully included, feel empowered, and have the support, technology, and adjustments they need to thrive. 

For GAAD 2024, Leandro Camilo, our Global Disability Inclusion Leader is joined by two of PwC’s leading accessibility specialists to provide some actionable, practical recommendations for how we can all enhance digital accessibility through our day-to-day work. Find out more in our Making the world of work more accessible: Ten practical ways you can promote digital accessibility and inclusion every day article.

“I hope that in the coming months and years we can move the needle when it comes to Disability Inclusion both at PwC and in society to continue to execute on our aspirational vision to foster an environment where people with disabilities are included, feel empowered to be themselves and have access to the support and adjustments they need to thrive.”
