Cultural & Linguistic Diversity at PwC Australia
- PwC has partnered with the Australian Human Rights Commission on thought leadership to promote cultural diversity in leadership.
- PwC has a floating public holiday policy to support all their people and allow them to celebrate days of cultural significance, participate in religious festivities or spend time with their family. Reflection spaces are also provided in every PwC office.
- Anyone can join PwC’s national employee-led cultural diversity network (Cultural Connections) which provides an avenue for advice and support, in addition to celebrating cultural differences and increasing levels of awareness across the firm. People from all cultures are encouraged to join.
Our Cultural Connections network provides a place for advice, support and connection for our people from all cultures. It celebrates cultural differences and increases cultural awareness across the firm. Cultural Connections offers cultural awareness training, through a 1.5 hour facilitated session designed to build awareness of individual culture, learn how the culture of others impacts the way they communicate and act, and develop a culturally inclusive mindset.
“When I started at PwC, the Cultural Connections network instantly gave me a greater sense of belonging. It is a community of like-minded people, both with lived experience and allies, who share a passion for building cultural awareness. As a person from a different culture, I am proud to work at a firm that prioritises challenging unconscious bias and talking action against racial inequity - and I loved that I was able to prioritise cultural days of significance for my family by using the Floating Public Holidays Policy!”
