Women in business
We want to be known as a great place to work for both men and women, that’s why we are committed to attracting and retaining talented male and female professionals. The attraction, retention, advancement and empowerment of women relates to the profitability, sustainability and future growth of our organisation.
We are proud that our yearly intake of new joiners is 50% female, and are constantly working hard to also increase this percentage at senior leadership levels. This way we are guaranteed of keeping our best female employees.
The firm has put in place strategies aimed at retaining female staff, including looking at areas such as a flexible working environment, work-life balance, coaching and mentoring, creating opportunities for networking and understanding the reasons for female staffers leaving the firm and not returning.
We recognise that ensuring a gender-balanced work environment and enabling women to succeed in their careers is an issue that goes beyond PwC. To this end, our commitment to furthering our own efforts is reflected in our work with the United Nation’s HeForShe movement, a solidarity campaign for the advancement of gender equality.
Our three key actions in support of the HeForShe movement include empowering both men and women to act as gender equality advocates through educational programmes, leveraging the global PwC Network to drive awareness among our teams, clients and communities and helping female talent reach leadership positions within the PwC Global Inclusion Index.
Through these actions, the firm aims to provide the foundation for building equal work environments for people joining the PwC Network, while acting as inspiration to other firms, our clients and communities to endeavour to participate in the HeForShe initiative and other gender equality initiatives.
