The technology gender gap starts at school and persists through every stage of girls’ and women’s lives. According to our own research, school girls are being put off tech subjects and careers and only 3% of them say a career in technology is their first choice.
Graduates and apprentices
For those who want a blend of work experience and study, we offer Technology Degree Apprenticeships to school and college leavers, and graduate programmes to university leavers.
To change the ratio and boost the diversity of future technologists, we need to inspire students to consider a career in technology. Tech We Can provides free lesson plans and resources for teachers and schools in the UK.
Parents and carers
We provide advice and support for balancing work and home life, as well as options for coming back into the workplace after short or long-term absences.
Working parents / carers bring huge value to our firm and we want to ensure that they are supported at every stage.
We know that everyones lives are different and that traditional working patterns might not be right for you.
Our Flexible Careers Network (FCN) is one way we offer the flexibility you might need to continue to progress your ambitions. This is a network of individuals who have registered their interest to join PwC on a flexible contract.
Working later in life
We’re committed to creating an environment that enables our people to prioritise their wellbeing and take care of themselves.
For older women in particular, our Be Well, Work Well initiative includes guidance on menopause in the workplace and financial wellbeing.
