PwC and Pride 

PwC continues to have a strong relationship with Pride in London and other Pride events around the UK. For 2019, we are sponsoring the Pride in London event, as well as New York City World Pride - to mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising.

A record-breaking number of our people will represent the firm at Pride in London, with over 140 partners and staff marching through the streets in front of over a million spectators to mark the 'Pride Jubilee' - the theme of this year’s Pride campaign. 2019 marks the seventh year PwC have taken part in Pride in London and the third year as sponsors of the event, see our videos below to see some highlights from our day at Pride, and hear the inspiring love stories from our staff.

Canal Parade 2017

As part of our sponsorship of Pride in London colleagues from our German and Dutch offices joined us to celebrate diversity and inclusion in our capital. We were delighted to spread the #LoveHappensHere message even wider by accepting their invitation to join them on the PwC Netherlands boat in the Canal Parade 2017. PwC was for the second consecutive year an official sponsor of Amsterdam Gay Pride where our Dutch and German colleagues celebrated the theme I can be myself @work illustrated in this video.
