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.

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.
