Paternal leave. Maternal leave. Supporter of LGBT.
Good D&I programs and events
very diverse team
child care and maternity leave options are available and there are people of many different backgrounds in the office
Look at PwC's website about diversity. They have a page just for diversity. They have projects and internal programs to help out the indigenous community. We have a group that advocates for gender diversity.
The company has many policies in place to promote diversity. One is the 40/40/20 partnership target, meaning 40% of partners will be male, 40% female, and 20% discretionary according to business needs.
There is a large commitment to diversity, but depending on what the issue is, there's very little tangible movement in the space. LGBT is fantastically covered. However, issues like women and ethnic diversity appears to fall short. The efforts to discuss this seems to be more than other firms put in though.
Transparent and goals to promote diversity are shared
Working really hard to get there and taking D&I very seriously
Strongest diversity approach out of all firms that I am familiar with.
World leading
D&I team is very focused on this.
Big drive to promote Diversity and inclusion. Good with gender and LGBT, need to do more culturally and with people with disabilities.
Lots of people have flexible working arrangements to accommodate being working parents.
Diversity was actually discussed in detail in the most recent morning meeting. Our team in particular seems strong in this regard.
My company is one of the top companies for LGBT rights and gender diversity.
The commitment to diversity is good, but the history of the company means that the top level is still not diverse.
The company does not discriminate against women, ethnic minorities and the LGBT community. Maternity leave is provided and there is a policy where employees can work from home if needed. The company is committed to ensuring it is diverse and accepting of those who are considered in the minority.
My entire team is roughly a 50% on gender. The team is also very ethnically diverse with staff originating from all over the world. They are also very supportive of the LGBT community often raising awareness through special events.
There is a significant investment in the diversity and inclusion programmes with affinity groups for at least women, people with disabilities, queer individuals, and people from varying cultural backgrounds. There is a focus on recruiting these individuals and supporting them in the firm.
What does your company do to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds?
Getting rid of university degrees as a requirement in the hiring process. Hiring non-traditional education backgrounds.
applications are open to anyone
It's on the news; PwC is part of a upskilling programme to provide internship opportunities to less privileged individuals (including war veterans).
This company ensures that there is a strong presence amongst its management who are of different backgrounds.
Outreach to areas and offer internships and support for them.
The company is committed to ensuring that it does not discriminate against those from less privileged backgrounds.
While this has been mentioned there is no advertised targeted programme for individuals from less privileged backgrounds to my knowledge.
PwC does: Indigenous consulting mentoring for schools in low socio economic backgrounds pro bono work for charities
I know that career advertising has been increased heavily to Western Sydney University to attract those candidates.
