True gender inclusiveness helps us achieve our best

True gender inclusiveness helps us achieve our best

At KPMG every individual counts, so it follows that we believe we can make a difference for all in the firm. 

Over the years, we have empowered our people, regardless of gender, by providing equal opportunities for them to grow and develop. 

Of course, we recognise that more must still be done, but we're committed to furthering our progress on gender inclusiveness.

International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is held annually on 8 March in celebration of women’s uniqueness and in recognition of their valuable contributions and achievements, regardless of their nationality, ethnicity, language or cultural background. It also reminds us to explore the untapped potential of women. 

KPMG China celebrated International Women’s Day 2018 by launching several activities such as a global pledge tool, a ‘Wear Purple’ campaign, inspiring talks by successful female figures, a business clothing collection project benefiting underprivileged youth, and a charity run advocating girls’ rights. These events helped foster an inclusive culture, where gender inclusiveness is appreciated and valued by our people.

Plan International

KPMG China has been an active supporter of the ‘Because I am a Girl’ (BIAAG) campaign since its launch by Plan International Hong Kong (Plan) in 2015. BIAAG is a global campaign advocating girls’ rights and the protection of girls in developing countries from violence, abuse, discrimination and inequality.

Since 2015, we have taken part in the ‘Plan International Hong Kong Youth Conference’ where young people exchange ideas, and reflect on the plight of girls in many developing countries and how to prevent their suffering. The conference helps nurture global citizenship among the youth, who are the driving force of our future society.

The KPMG Foundation has supported Plan International’s scholarship project for adolescent Hui ethnic girls in Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, which is considered one of China’s most underdeveloped provinces. Most of the adolescent Hui ethnic girls do not have the opportunity to receive proper education. They are left with no choice but to migrate to big cities to find jobs, where they are vulnerable to human trafficking, exploitation, gang violence, drug abuse and all sorts of mistreatment due to their lack of education.

With our sponsorship, a vocational school has been selected to educate 100 girls. Courses that the school offers include but are not limited to pre-school education studies, basic computer skills, Arabic language, business, and vehicle maintenance.
