The world’s largest professional services firm, PwC has offices in 159 countries and employs over 180,000 people. The size and scale of PwC’s global operations is matched by the depth of its commitment to corporate responsibility and giving. PwC seeks to inspire each one of its employees to participate in one or more charitable activity through volunteering or donations. Every employee is provided with 10 hours per year to volunteer. In FY2011 alone, PwC employees donated over 80,000 hours of workday volunteer hours.
In particular, PwC focuses its corporate giving strategy on youth education, climate change, and social inclusion. PwC has been a corporate partner of AGMC since 2007.
Since that year, Bradley Deckert has led PwC’s United States and global lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) initiatives. Deckert sits on PwC’s national diversity team; in recent years, the team has contributed to a wide range of national LGBT organizations, including the Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, and The Trevor Project. At the local level, PwC’s local market diversity leaders identify and support community groups, including the AGMC, that are consistent with PwC’s commitment to diversity.
PwC was the first of the Big Four accounting firms to convene a board of openly gay partners to advise the company on LGBT initiatives, a strategy that includes supporting its own LGBT employees. Since 2006, PwC has received a 100-percent rating on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index. Deckert, who has been in Atlanta for 18 years and with PwC for 10 years, describes PwC as a leader in its field for LGBT inclusion and support.
AGMC appreciates PwC’s commitment to LGBT equality, and is proud to include PwC among our corporate partners!
