PwC Canada is bolstering the number of women appointed to senior leadership roles and aims to reach parity in those admissions by 2020 — a goal it shares with the global company.

“I’m a firm believer that it’s absolutely attainable,” says Phil Grosch, PwC’s digital services leader in Canada, who in 2011 helped start a program to keep top performing women in the company, which has subsequently helped boost their numbers in leadership roles.

The business consulting firm isn’t alone in its quest. Bank of Montreal, MasterCard and Twitter are among a growing stable of companies committed to increasing the number of women in senior roles.
