PwC's Indigenous Consulting

There is a growing desire from business, governments and communities to help create positive change for Indigenous Australians. But creating that change is challenging, and much of the investment in Indigenous programs doesn't achieve its intended outcomes.

We're inspired by the opportunity to help create more impact from these good intentions - by changing how communities are engaged, so policies, programs and organisations realise their potential. PIC is majority owned, led and staffed by Indigenous Australians. The unique power of our business is the combination of our Indigenous expertise and experience, with PwC's world-leading professional services capability

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands where we live and work.  We pay respect to them and their Elders – both past and present.

Our story of facilitating conversations…

PIC is an unprecedented partnership between a group of Indigenous Australians and PwC, one of the world's largest professional services firms. Our aim is to help create positive change by providing trusted professional services and advice to government, corporate and community clients on Indigenous matters.

We are an Indigenous business - PIC is majority owned, led and staffed by Indigenous Australians. PIC has an Indigenous Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer, and the majority of our National Executive and Board are Indigenous. Our Indigenous owners have a 51% share in PIC, and PwC Australia owns the remaining 49%. We are not a new service offering for PwC Australia – we are a separate member firm in the PwC global network.

Real and lasting change happens when it's created by Indigenous people, not for Indigenous people. That's why Indigenous ownership, management and delivery is such a fundamental ingredient of the PIC business. By combining our understanding of cultural, commercial, and community realities with the significant capabilities of the PwC network, PIC is in an ideal position to help facilitate this positive change.

PIC specialises in providing advice, developing strategies and supporting their execution to help realise the commercial and community potential of Indigenous policies, programs, projects, organisations and businesses. We offer a wide range of Indigenous consulting services.
