PwC named in Top 50 Employers for Women list

Published at 00:01 AM on 21 April 2016

PwC has been named as a leader on workplace gender equality by being included in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2016.  The unranked alphabetical list is published in partnership with Business in the Community, the Prince’s Responsible Business Network, as part of the charity’s Responsible Business Week.

Kathryn Nawrockyi, Gender Equality Director at Business in the Community, said:

“Huge congratulations to PwC on being named in The Times Top 50 Employers for Women 2016 – the process was highly competitive so they should be extremely proud of their success.  They have demonstrated a commitment to fundamentally changing workplace processes and cultures to make them inclusive to all, benefitting women and men at every level in their organisation, and I hope they inspire other employers to do the same.”

PwC was recognised for its commitment to gender equality and the progress it has made in the last 12 months, including the success of its high potential female development programme Breakthrough, the launch of its return to work programme Back to Business, and the implementation of grade pool targets by gender (and ethnicity) across all areas of the business.

Gaenor Bagley, head of people at PwC, said:

“We’re committed to gender equality as part of the wider inclusion agenda, and through our work we hope to inspire and motivate others to do the same. While it’s pleasing to be recognised by The Times and BITC, we have more to do, and we will continue to build on our achievements to date."

The Times Top 50 Employers for Women list involves a comprehensive submission process managed by the gender equality campaign at Business in the Community.  All organisations within the Top 50 have demonstrated that gender equality is a key part of their business strategy, with consistent commitment to creating workplaces and cultures that are inclusive of women from entry level through to senior leadership.
