We applaud the PWC Supervisors for taking the steps needed to ensure that PWC has a green and sustainable future! With the creation of this new office, we will be advocating for a diverse and just hiring process that emphasizes candidates who have experience with disadvantaged communities.

Stay tuned for future updates on PWC going green!
