Our partners and staff in Australia hold over 500 board and advisory roles with not-for-profits, using their skills at a leadership level to build capacity in the sector.
PwC OnBoard is connecting our people across the firm to board and advisory roles with not for profits (NFPs) they are passionate about. As professionals, we have a role to play in driving social change across Australia. PwC OnBoard bridges the gap between corporate Australia and the NFP sector; between our people and their communities.
Through this program our people use their professional skills to give back to the community and in turn, NPFs gain access to the time, talent and networks of a range of PwC professionals. This program is a very practical way of bringing our firm’s purpose to life to build trust in society and solve important problems.
“I’d like to see PwC OnBoard grow into a global program. PwC New Zealand has just established the program and we have received interest from a number of other territories. I would also love to support other corporates in Australia to set up similar programs that enable their people to use their skills to give back.”
Since the program commenced in early 2015, the PwC OnBoard program has doubled the number of female partners securing board and advisory roles. The program has also increased the amount of younger professionals sitting on boards as well as those from diverse backgrounds. The results are shifting the common misconceptions around the age, gender, cultural background required to sit on a board.
