PwC sexist email nightmare thing of past as it wins award

Guru congratulates PricewaterhouseCooper (PwC) on making it into the Times Top 50 Employers for Women, which was independently judged by the Opportunity Now quango.

Sarah Churchman, PwC’s head of diversity and engagement said PwC’s place in the list reflected the power of the firm’s networking and talent programmes to foster female talent in the workplace and encourage greater diversity.

However, Yours Truly suspects it might have been more to do with the ‘rigorous’ way the list was compiled, as, to quote PwC: “Entry was by self nomination and open to any employer with a UK presence. Employers needed to supply detailed information on what their organisation was doing internally as a top employer for women as well as what it was doing externally to promote gender equality, diversity and inclusion and to create opportunities for women in a wider context.”

Yours Truly is guessing that the company did not include the debacle at its offices in Ireland, involving emails about Top 10 women in the office, which threatened to snowball into an avalanche of anti-women practices across the financial services sector.

Drinks all round.
