GLEE@PwC

 

GLEE@PwC is our inclusive business network for Gays, Lesbians and Everyone Else. You don’t need to be gay or to work for PwC to join. We provide extraordinary opportunities for business networking, knowledge sharing and personal and professional development all with a deep value and respect for the diversity of views, needs and aspirations of our members.


What we stand for

We passionately believe that difference is something we all have in common, regardless of what that difference might be. We use our extensive internal and external networks to reinforce this vision and remind everyone how import it is to value difference. We use our voice to help everyone find and express their own difference inside and outside of the workplace. The work we do throughout the year supports this vision, so expect to see invites coming out for events focused around building personal and professional strength and resilience.

A sneak peak at what we do

We're here to support the personal and career well-being of our members. We hold a variety of events throughout the year and we pride ourselves in getting Gays, Lesbians and Everyone Else engaged. Some of our events include:

  • Speaker Series: we bring inspirational speakers to talk to us about their professional and personal journeys. These have included Gareth Thomas, one of the few high-profile gay men in UK sport.
  • Speed mentoring: We hold regular workshops aimed at facilitating focussed business and career discussions with professionals in an open and friendly environment
  • Leadership and Resilience: We are engaged with many external networks through our LinkedIn group and work with them to run leadership, mental strength and resilience workshops such as the Genius Power Dreams workshop run by GLEE@PwC partner sponsor Andy Woodfield.
  • Fundraising and volunteering in the community. We’re founding supporters and sponsors of Galeforce Capital, the first global initiative dedicated to supporting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) social enterprises. We raised over £22,000 for Stonewall's anti-homophobic bullying campaign in 2012.

PwC is a member of Stonewall's Diversity Champions Programme, Britain's good practice employers' forum on sexual orientation. The work we are doing to promote valuing difference and tackling diversity issues was recognised again in Stonewall's Workplace Equality Index this year as we were successful in getting into the Top 100. This index measures employers’ efforts to create inclusive workplaces for lesbian, gay and bisexual people, using a stringent set of evidence-based criteria.
