In their first-ever Diversity and Inclusion Transparency Report, PwC outlined their intent to build a workforce in the U.S. that better reflects the diverse makeup of higher education enrollment and put forward specific aspirations around recruitment, retention and advancement. Since then, they have shared progress on their short- and long-term aspirations and launched their third annual Purpose and Inclusion Report. By putting even greater focus on equality and KPIs, they are driving progress through transparency.
