On 1st December, PwC’s DAWN and GLEE networks will be co-hosting a debate on HIV, in recognition of World AIDS Day. PwC Partner Andy Woodfield will be joined by guest panellists and explore what living with HIV in the UK is like today, its associated stigma and how we can combat this by creating an inclusive environment where people can bring their whole self to work.
There are over 100,000 people in the UK living with HIV (nearly 2% of the population), and an estimated 35 million globally. Many organisations predict these numbers are considerably higher than this with many people hiding their status due to the associated stigma.
We invite you to come along, dispel the myths, and smash the stigma.
Date: Tuesday 1 December 2015
Time: 5.30pm registration, 6pm start.
Location: Hilton Hotel, 5 More London Place, Tooley St London SE1 2B, Rooms 2-4

At PwC, we aim to recognise and embrace all the ways in which our people are individual and our Disability, Ability, and Well-being Network (“DAWN”) and Gay, Lesbian and Everyone Else Network (“GLEE”) help support this through their profile, visibility and activities. Both networks regularly hold events for our clients and community so do come along and meet us.
