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.

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.
Graduate, Canberra
Transparent and goals to promote diversity are shared

My company is one of the top companies for LGBT rights and gender diversity.
Graduate, Adelaide
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.
Graduate, Perth
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.
Graduate, Perth
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.
Graduate, Sydney
Have communities such as GLEE, LGBT. Host functions and events specifically for it and continually send around emails promoting it and do talks.
Graduate, Brisbane
Seems good. PwC pushes for increased number of women in the workplace and in higher positions. I have attended various networking sessions PwC seems to rank poorly regarding people of colour, especially at the partner level I have come across managers on maternity and paternity leave. Apart from this I haven’t looked into the issue further
Graduate, Sydney
There has been a lot of recent communications about diversity and inclusion at PwC. There is also a big push for diversity in upper management which is exciting.
