"We Are HeForShe": PwC Commits to Take Action for Gender Equality

Dennis Nally - Chairman of PwC International
Today Dennis Nally, Chairman of PwC International, announces the commitments PwC has made to support the UN Women's HeForShe movement.

This work will be done with UN Women, the United Nations entity dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women. On Sept. 20, 2014, UN Women introduced HeForShe, which aims to mobilise one billion men and boys in support of gender equality.

At the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland in January 2015, Dennis Nally became an IMPACT 10x10x10 champion– making PwC one of the first 10 corporations around the world committing to take bold, game-changing action to achieve gender equality within and beyond their institutions.

PwC has made the following commitments:
1. Develop and launch an innovative male-focused gender curriculum with global reach
2. Launch a Global Inclusion Index to further increase women in leadership roles
3. Raise the global profile of HeForShe with PwC people, clients, and communities
