PwC is committed to transformation and recognises that transformation is not about numbers but about meaningful development of our people.
The firm recognises that Transformation is an economic imperative and it is not only essential to the growth of the firm but also of the South African economy.
We endeavour to transform the South African economy to enable the meaningful participation of Black people, Women, and Rural communities in the mainstream of the economy in a manner that has a positive impact on employment, income redistribution, structural readjustment and economic growth.
The objective of the CA Charter is to advance economic transformation and promote the economic participation of black people. Enterprise & Supplier Development is not merely a combination of Enterprise Development and Preferential Procurement, but sets our to increase the promotion of black-owned and black women-owned businesses with 51% and 30% black ownership respectively.
PwC continues to engage with emerging black accounting firms on audit jobs in order for skills transfer to take place and economic empowerment to prevail, whenever possible. The firm is also involved with a number of organisations that aim to advance black development in South Africa. These include firms such as the BSSA and Faranani – a PwC initiative which focuses on rural women development.
