At PwC, supporting balanced gender representation across our business has long been a focus. But we still have more we want to do. We are laser focused on the representation of women at leadership levels combined with substantive action that drives an inclusive talent culture from day one. This dual approach supports a sustainable pipeline of female talent across our network.
We ask each member firm in our network to explicitly focus on gender diversity. To increase accountability, we have developed several gender-focused KPI’s including women partner admissions, proportionality of promotions, women experienced hires, the representation of women in succession planning and women leading priority accounts. Looking forward, we’re committed to continued progress and support of gender equity.

For International Women’s Day (IWD) 2023, PwC is sharing the voices of women from around the world through our research-based insights on empowerment – and exploring what more can be done to propel women’s empowerment in the workplace, the economy, and the technology sector.
This year's UN Women IWD theme is ‘DigitALL: innovation and technology for gender equality’. We take a look inside PwC bringing together profiles of what it’s like to work and lead in technology from our PwC women in tech role models, and some of the programmes we’ve put in place to support balanced gender representation in our digital and technology practices.

Text: For example, women have less autonomy over when and where they work, and are feeling lower levels of job fulfilment, and belonging.
Sheila, Financial Services professional, Cape Town: “We need to have conversations throughout all levels of the organisation to make sure that it is a workplace that everyone enjoys working in and one that they feel that they truly belong.”
Text: The good news is that the women in our study with higher levels of empowerment are significantly more likely to ask for a promotion, a raise or recommend their employer as a place to work.

Over nine years we partnered with UN Women HeForShe working extensively to elevate male allyship and advocacy for gender equality both within and beyond PwC. We graduated from the HeForShe Alliance partnership December 2023, but as former partners, we continue to be ambassadors for the HeForShe solidarity movement. At PwC, we are aware of the critical role that the private sector has in advancing gender equality, and partnering with UN Women HeForShe provided us a platform to act as role models in our industry but also join forces with HeForShe to truly accelerate the pace of change.
