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.
