Onwards: Actioning women's leadership

Acting on the priorities impacting women in Australia.

Strategy& Australia is committed to fostering an inclusive culture for all our people – one that allows us to live our values every day, be ourselves and to feel empowered to realise and discover our potential. We’re dedicated to ensuring all of our people are equally supported throughout their careers.

Strategy&’s Onwards: Actioning women’s leadership program is an Australian initiative which makes a long-term commitment to women. We’re taking the lead and talking honestly about and acting on the issues and priorities impacting women in Australia. We’re opening up conversations and fostering a community for everyone. We’re bringing women’s leadership to the Australian community in which we live and work.

Our women’s leadership program complements existing initiatives and strategic diversity and inclusion (D&I) goals of the Australian firm. Onwards focuses on collectively discussing and raising issues, sharing experiences and learning from each other and growing together.

Diversity and inclusion

At Strategy& we foster an inclusive culture which embraces differences – one that allows us to live our values every day, be ourselves and to feel empowered to realise and discover our potential. Because we know that when people from different backgrounds and different points of view work together they create the greatest value - for our business, our clients and society.

Enhancing our diversity and inclusion is a critical part of the vision, values and strategy of Strategy& and PwC Australia. We believe that fostering inclusion, promoting broad perspectives and driving diverse career opportunities for our people will enable us to create a distinctive experience for our clients and create better outcomes for society.

Culture and benefits

Our people and the culture we co-create is what drives us every day. That is why we’ve built a shared environment that challenges the status quo to bring our unique differences together.

Our home is one of collaboration, teamwork and innovation. But, above all, it’s one that embraces difference. Not every firm is like this. We see your unique differences as a key asset to our community. And, rather than have you blend in, we want to help you unleash your full potential – both personally and professionally.

Onwards and flexibility

Equality needs to start in the home, but more often than not this isn’t possible to achieve without being matched with professional support. This is why we’ve designed policies that equally support all of our people, enabling women to progress in their chosen careers without any fear, concern or guilt over competing family or personal demands.

We provide you the flexibility and support (both financial and non-financial) so you don’t have to choose between work and family. Some of the ways we’re achieving this include:

  • All roles flex policy that enables you to create your own schedule.
  • Progressive 18 week parental leave policy for mums, dads, foster carers, and parents of stillbirth, which has no minimum service requirements.
  • Option to purchase up to an additional 12 weeks leave.
  • Ongoing mentoring and coaching programs, as well as inclusive leadership training.
  • A family and domestic violence policy including 10 days paid leave.
