It's about recognising, respecting, valuing and leveraging diversity in a way that enhances our perspective or point of view.
The creation, sharing and application of knowledge are central to everything we do. But knowledge doesn't grow on its own. It's created and nurtured by people coming together to share their individual ideas. This is further enriched by variety – especially by the unlimited abundance of experience and cultural diversity in PwC.
Diversity is all the ways in which people are unique, both visibly and subliminally. Inclusion is about how we act. It's about recognising, respecting, valuing and leveraging diversity in a way that enhances our perspective or point of view.
An inclusive culture is one where we can feel we can bring our whole selves to work and where we can express our ideas openly. By strengthening the representation of diversity in our firm, we do more than just create an opportunity for individuals; we also harness great talent and great potential. 'Diversity is a noun, inclusion is a verb'.
At PwC in South Africa, women comprise 56% of our workforce, and make an invaluable contribution to our firm. Our strong focus on gender diversity is evident through the many programmes that we have in place.
