Be Included @ Shine

#beincludedandshine #beyourself

Our theme in 2023 is ‘Be included and shine’. This year we are celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of our internal LHBTIQ+network Shine. PwC strives to achieve an inclusive culture in which we embrace diversity. Inclusive means that everyone feels involved and valued – not in spite of but thanks to their differences. Only then everyone can shine at work. This message is in line with the Pride 2023 theme #youreincluded.’

Over 100 (international) colleagues proudly carry this message on the all-electric boat. Dancing to the music played by our own PwC DJs and accompanied by drag queens from Diverse agency.

Sustainable sailing

PwC has committed to Net Zero by 2030. Net Zero means not adding new emissions to the atmosphere. For PwC this comes down to reducing our absolute emissions as much as possible, but by at least fifty percent and offsetting any remaining emissions. Combined, our emissions would then be Net Zero. That is why this year our boat is completely electric. The necessary electricity on the boat, for example for the music, is produced by a battery instead of a diesel generator.

Shine with Pride
Today and every day

We take pride into taking action for LGBT+ inclusion
This spring we launched our global LGBT+inclusion Strategy. Fostering a space where LGBT+ solvers can shine
