Sarah Churchman

14 years ago, Sarah Churchman, recognising the need for PwC to focus on diversity and inclusion, established the first D&I team from scratch and has developed it into its current format of a team of 6 covering the UK. Sarah has tirelessly driven and shaped the diversity and inclusion agenda at PwC, and has been fundamental in shifting the firms focus from equality to diversity to inclusion. Under Sarah’s leadership, PwC has implemented a series of activities, these include but are not limited to the sponsorship of Breakthrough – their organisational development programme supporting talented women, establishing PwC’s Diversity Council of senior partners, and the introduction of diversity and bias awareness training. Not surprisingly, Sarah is frequently sought out to share best practice on D&I with external organisations and to speak at conferences. PwC has made significant progress and is a now viewed as a thought leader in this area, and that is down to Sarah’s unstinting passion, resilience and remarkable work in this field.
