Shine is an inclusive business network for LGBTQ+ people, allies and supporters. You don't need to work for PwC to join.
To mark 50 years since the Stonewall uprising, Shine launched the Inspirational 50 campaign, celebrating role models in the LGBTQ+ community and allies in the run up to Pride 2019. The Inspirational 50 included PwC staff and clients who have inspired our employees to be themselves.
In May 2018, PwC launched “Out to Succeed” in partnership with Out Leadership. It’s an innovative, international study of LGBT+ emerging leaders, drawn primarily from their talent accelerator OutNEXT. Watch the video filmed at the launch event, featuring perspectives from Todd Sears, PwC’s Bob Moritz and Jon Terrry, Chase Consumer Bank CEO Thasunda Duckett, Ogilvy US CEO Lou Aversano, and more!
PwC continues to have a strong relationship with Pride in London and other Pride events around the UK. In 2019 we sponsored 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 represented 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 the Pride campaign. 2019 marked the seventh year PwC has 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.
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.
Trans Awareness Week is an opportunity to learn about gender identity and to help promote understanding and support for the trans, non-binary and gender fluid communities in the workplace. The blog Coming out and getting back on track includes perspectives from Sev and his parents (including PwC Partner, Jonathan Howe) is an open and honest account of the last few years.
PwC are proud sponsors of Pride in London 2019.
