At PwC, our people agenda is at the heart of our business strategy and as a progressive employer it’s essential we attract, retain and develop the most diverse and talented groups of people. It’s not only the right thing to do, it also puts us in the best position as a commercial business to meet the demands of our clients. I'm very proud of the way our insurance practice has really started to embrace building technology into everything we do and I look forward to working with others to continue to do this in an inclusive way.
