PwC is a founding 10x10x10 IMPACT champion

At the World Economic Forum in Davos in January 2015, PwC became an IMPACT 10x10x10 champion– making PwC one of the first 10 corporations around the world committing to take bold, game-changing action to achieve gender equality within and beyond their institutions.

The HeForShe’s IMPACT 10x10x10 programme engages 30 key leaders across three sectors—the public sector, private sector and academia. All 30 IMPACT champions have made common commitments and have also developed tailored commitments, formally reviewed by an expert team at UN Women and approved personally by the Executive Director of UN Women, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka.

IMPACT champions were selected based on their reputation for strong ethical practices; their demonstrated excellence in public service; their global reach and relevance, and their willingness to use their full footprint and influence to drive and inspire change across the private sector.

PwC’s commitments include:

  1. Develop and launch an innovative male-focused gender curriculum with global reach
    PwC will develop an innovative new curriculum to educate and empower men as gender equality advocates. PwC will also develop a suite of education tools for its employees, to drive awareness and to define why gender parity matters, and what we can all do to achieve it.
  2. Launch a Global Inclusion Index to further increase women in leadership roles
    For the first time, PwC will complete a comprehensive global evaluation of the rates of women across all levels of PwC, with a specific focus on women in leadership. Based on the insights from this evaluation, each PwC firm will be able to develop tailored interventions to address any potential barriers.
  3. Raise the global profile of HeForShe with PwC people, clients, and communities.
    PwC will lend their full global footprint to HeForShe, driving awareness and action within and beyond PwC. Men will be encouraged to commit online, and take specific actions towards gender equality.
