Women in PwC

Supporting gender diversity at PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Being seen as an employer of choice and being a great place to work for all our people is a key priority for PricewaterhouseCoopers.
To succeed in our business, we are committed to attracting and retaining the best talent, both male and female.

Whilst 50% of our intake each year is female, this percentage decreases significantly at senior leadership levels in the firm. This decrease is linked to specific reasons that the firm is proactively addressing to ensure our best women stay with PricewaterhouseCoopers. Specifically; our EXCO has endorsed a high level-working group to focus on core priority areas that we believe will contribute towards the retention of our talent, especially our females. These areas include flexibility and work-life balance, reasons why women leave and do not return prejudices and networking, coaching and mentoring.

Ultimately, we believe that attraction, retention, advancement and empowerment of high-performing women, relates to the profitability, sustainability and future growth of our organisation. Happy, committed and enthusiastic people is our ultimate goal.
