PwC KSA welcomed 24 Saudi females to start off the Assurance Center of Excellence (ACE) in Al-Khobar on 12 June. This team is the first fully female team in the firm’s Assurance practice. The new team is part of PwC’s commitment to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its local talent as well as its contribution to the progression of women in the workforce. PwC KSA consists of 42% Saudi nationals and 20% females (of which 16% are Saudi).

Omar Mohammed Al Sagga, KSA Assurance Leader & Deputy Country Leader said: “I am extremely pleased to achieve this milestone at a time when the Kingdom continues to implement Vision 2030. We, as PwC, are committed to support this vision by playing our part in enabling and empowering women to fully participate in the workforce and the economy.”

Michael Orfaly, Middle East ACE Leader added: “We are a purpose lead, value driven firm and our diversity & inclusion agenda is key to our strategy. We will continue to invest in the Kingdom, as the Kingdom is transforming through the realisation of Vision 2030, and here we are investing in Saudi talent, and in particular Saudi women.”
