We welcome people from all backgrounds such as arts, business, economics, engineering, finance, health, information technology, law and more. We don’t just accept diversity, we celebrate it.
The diversity story at PwC India focusses on valuing differences—differences of gender, communities, religions, regions, sexual orientation, ability, generations, backgrounds, among others. These differences enrich us as an employer where our people can add value, fulfil their aspirations, build a high performing culture and define our future irrespective of these differences. Valuing diversity and inclusion is fundamental to the PwC Purpose of building trust and solving important problems.
Our distinctive approach to diversity is based on a belief that each of us is personally accountable for creating and sustaining an inclusive environment. Diversity and inclusion enhance our perspectives and our ability to give our clients a distinctive experience. We also focus on various mentorship programmes—some of which are specially made for our women employees to become the leaders of the future.
I attended ‘We The Women’ event at Mumbai and PwC was the Knowledge Partner for the same. The event was a series of inspiring talks by successful women from diverse walks of life and varied experiences who had to beat the odds to carve their own path. It was a moment of epiphany when they revealed that in order to be successful and maintain a work life balance all we really need is to cultivate a close knit group of supportive, like minded women and men. I am grateful that I got to participate in such an event through PwC.
