Diversity in all its forms – gender, generation, ethnicity, sexuality, and disability, to people with a broader range of skills, experiences and industry backgrounds than those traditionally employed by an accounting firm – is a vital element of what makes PwC. We hire and nurture professionals who take a variety of approaches to problem solving, who are willing to challenge the status quo, who think differently from one another, and who come from many different backgrounds and cultures. We do this because to solve important problems, we require diverse talent.
Our diversity initiatives and strategies are designed to attract, develop, and advance the most talented individuals irrespective of their background and culture; to spur innovation, drive growth and sustain competitive advantage in the marketplace. Our unique approach to diversity is based on a belief that we all have a personal accountability for success in this area. We provide our people with training and tools to help increase their awareness and understanding of differences and why they matter, so their actions can contribute to our inclusive and high-performing workplace culture.
Leaders at PwC strive to set the tone at the top, to encourage everyone to aspire to greater heights professionally, and to give them the confidence that their ambitions can be realised within the organisation irrespective of their gender, background and culture.
As at June 2018, our extended staff complement amounted to 614 people.
Our aspiration is to build an inclusive culture that embraces differences - where we live our values every day and our people can be themselves. Because we know that when people from different backgrounds and different points of view work together, we can create the highest value - for our people, our clients and society.
