Diversity, equity and inclusion at PwC

Building on a culture of belonging

Our purpose starts within

We know that the future success of our firm is contingent on equitable experiences for our people. From recruitment to partnership, we’re working hard to give every person an equitable opportunity to grow and to thrive as part of our community of solvers. We understand that establishing and maintaining a fair, equitable and welcoming environment for all people requires building a culture of belonging: a shift from awareness to empathy — while demonstrating inclusive leadership that cultivates trust among our people and our clients.

Our people’s success is contingent on equity of experience

Building connections through inclusion networks

Whether our people identify as a part of the community or an ally, our 12 Inclusion Networks are an important part of how we continue to build on our culture of belonging and are another way we listen to our people. These dynamic communities are open to all based on shared backgrounds, experiences or interests with the goal of helping to inspire and support our culture of belonging where our people feel comfortable being who they are and feel valued for their input.

We support our people at every step of the way

Our diversity, equity and inclusion strategy is more than a series of programs. It’s as nuanced as the career journey itself. We invest in our people continually to provide comprehensive and inclusive benefits. Our strategic interventions aimed at increasing diversity and representation are leveraged at key moments within our people’s progression to provide support, opportunities and a sense of belonging. 

Start is PwC’s Career Readiness and Leadership development experience, uniquely designed for high-performing college sophomores/rising juniors looking to grow their business and professional acumen, and inclusive mindset.
