PwC Chairman and Senior Partner Bob Moritz leads the firm’s diversity efforts. He attributes the firm’s success to its initiatives addressing diversity. Moritz is a major proponent of driving conversations about race and diversity in the workplace and of having those discussions with other CEOs and corporate leaders.

The firm is also a long-time leader in outreach to white men to get them to understand that diversity and inclusion is not a zero- sum game.

PwC has placed a strong emphasis on diversity in its succession planning, with talent reviews discussed by Chief Diversity Officer Maria Castan Moats and the Line of Service diversity champion.

The firm’s chief procurement officer presents to the board of directors on supplier-diversity results. Women-owned businesses with a direct involvement with PwC are well represented.

The firm has also held training programs for human capital staff about how blind spots have the potential to impact how people make decisions.
