We unleash potential – with tailor-made digital technology. We inspire markets, companies, products, people, and ideas. We advise and coach digital autonomy. We plan and implement solutions that make companies more successful beyond these solutions. We’re experts in the Cloud, bootstrapping, ideation & innovation, managed applications and enterprise service management, the digital workplace, cruise ships, and everything – but absolutely everything – Atlassian. All of this is a real and honest craft for us. We love the clarity and are always direct, transparent, and offer a clear approach. We define clear goals, have clear processes, and deliver clear solutions. We say what we think, and we do it too.

Why we are partners with Unicorns in Tech

By partnering with Unicorns in Tech we want to do our part in creating a safe and welcoming space for LGBTIQ+ people in tech-related jobs. It is long overdue that a profession that is always looking for qualified people should embrace people of all backgrounds. Hopefully, we can help increase the visibility of LGBTIQ+ people in tech jobs.

LGBTIQ+ friendly policies

While we do not have a special LGBTIQ+ policy, we strongly condemn any kind of discrimination and choose our employees based on qualifications and cultural fit. This cultural fit strongly emphasizes open-mindedness, respect, and empathy. Being a company with people from more than 28 countries, we value the input and perspective that different personal contexts bring to our lives.

Events hosted with Unicorns in Tech

We are speakers at the next Summit 🙂 and maybe would like to host an own event next year.

PWC

Frankfurt, Germany

Our clients face diverse challenges, strive to put new ideas into practice, and seek expert advice. They turn to us for comprehensive support and practical solutions that deliver maximum value. Whether for a global player, a family business, or a public institution, we leverage all of our assets: experience, industry knowledge, high standards of quality, commitment to innovation, and the resources of our expert network in 158 countries. Building a trusting and cooperative relationship with our clients is particularly important to us – the better we know and understand our clients’ needs, the more effectively we can support them.

Why we sponsor Unicorns in Tech

What does sexual identity actually have to do with a job? That’s a good question and one that we at PwC openly address in cooperation with Unicorns in Tech. Of course, work is work and private life is purely a private matter – but private matters are not completely ignored on the job. For us at PwC, it goes without saying that a colleague can talk about his vacation with his life partner, or a female colleague about the first apartment she shared with her life partner. After all, it’s part of a person’s identity. In short, PwC not only promotes tolerance but demands absolute acceptance. It goes without saying that LGBT*IQ interests (LGBT*IQ = Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Inter, Queer) receive due attention at our firm.

While talent is evenly distributed, opportunity is clustered.
