Gender diversity statistics

    • Gender diversity information
    • At PwC, one of the ways we support our ongoing commitment to gender diversity is through our firm-wide engagement in the UN Women's HeforShe Campaign as one of three fouding corporate sponsors fo the 10x10x10 impact initiative. In a recent blog post on "The Unfinished Business of Gender Parity," PwC's chairman Dennis Nally confirmed more than 40,000 male and female PwC pledges to date for HeforShe. We also publcly released our gender diversity workforce figure sin UN Women's Inaugural HeforShe Parity Record.

      At the same time, as part of our ongoing efforts to emplower women in the workforce and provoke thoughtful dialogue around important diversity issues, we hosted our third Aspire to Lead: The PwC Women's Leadership Series global webcast. The webcast discussion included perspectives from Academy Award-winning actor Geena Davis, Dawn Hudson, CEO of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and Jennifer Yuh Nelson, Academy Award nominee and director of Kung Fu Panda 2. At a time when the issue of diversity in Hollywood has never been more prominent, Davis pointed out the leadership role the entertainmen tindustry can play in promoting gender parity through casting strong female characters for film and TV because, as she put it, "what we see is what we can be."

Flexible working

    • Flexible working policies
    • In a truly flexible work environment, individuals and teams decide together how and where work gets done.

      That's why PwC is creating a new paradigm of work. One where individual goals are respected as much as professional goals, and contribution is measured by results, not by the number of hours you spend in the office. 

      To do this, the firm offers several formal flexible work arrangements - from telecommuting to a compressed workweek. Leaders and colleagues work collaboratively to assess these arrangements in the context of needs of the individual, the team and the client.

      The formal flexible work arrangements PwC include: 
      - Reduced Hours: reducing hours to less than a regular full-time week
      - Flextime: work hours move earlier or later than "regular" business hours
      - PwC@Home: Formal telecommuting, routinely working from home three or more days per week
      - PwC Offsite: Telecommuting, routinely working from home one or two days per week
      - Job-Sharing: Two people jointly fulfill the responsiblities of one full-time position
      - Compressed Workweek: Standard hours compresed into fewer than five work days
      - Sabbatical: Leave of absence while maintaining benefits and a reduced salary rate

We constantly evaluate these programs to assess that they're working and make adjustments accordingly.
