Why DE&I is important to PwC
At PwC our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems. As part of this we strive to create an inclusive workforce culture for all our people, where difference is valued.
Progress PwC is making against our campaign commitments
We support the commitments of the Change the Race Ratio campaign because we know that when people from different backgrounds, with different experiences work together we create the most value - for our clients, our people and society.
We’re committed to improving the diversity of our workforce by building a culture that’s genuinely inclusive, a culture that empowers all of our people to thrive and feel they belong at PwC.
We’ve voluntarily published our ethnicity pay gap for the last five years, broken down to show our Asian, Black, Chinese and Mixed Heritage pay. We also share our ethnicity targets across all grades. But data alone is not enough - it must also include a clear action plan to drive and measure change.
Promoting racial equality is an important focus and since announcing our targeted racial equality plan over two years ago we have made progress.
We created a Staff Diversity Council to help shape our inclusion strategy, we launched the Black Talent in Business programme - inviting Black undergraduate students to complete a paid shadowing programme with the aim of securing a graduate role with us, and we partnered with 10,000 Black Interns and the Black Young Professionals (BYP) Network to attract the next generation of Black leaders to PwC.
Whilst progress is being made we are not complacent - it is clear that there is still much to do to advance racial equality in the workplace and that’s why we are proud to support the Change the Race Ratio campaign to help enact change.
