As part of our commitment to continue to build an inclusive culture and tackle racial inequality, we established a ColourBrave Charity Committee, made up of people from across the firm. Their role is to help allocate grants and develop volunteering opportunities to increase our support for Black-led social enterprises, as well as charities with ethnic minority beneficiaries.
In October 2020, we encouraged eligible organisations to apply for a grant. The Committee then selected 25 Black-led charities and social enterprises to add to those we already support through the PwC Foundation and PwC Social Entrepreneurs Club.
These organisations offer a vast range of services for a variety of different beneficiaries across many different regions. You can find out more about them below.
