Inclusion and Diversity

Fostering a diverse and inclusive culture where all of our professionals can excel.

Fostering a diverse and inclusive culture where all of our professionals can excel.

KPMG is proud to foster a culture defined by having the best people, with the skills and determination to deliver above and beyond. And that means we must continue to recruit, retain, and develop people who are technically brilliant, insightful, and astute professionals who are also forward-thinking, confident, and globally minded.

At KPMG, we lead with inclusion first. We believe that building a truly inclusive culture is essential to becoming the Clear Choice. With an inclusive culture, all of our people feel a sense of belonging at KPMG. All of our people are able to bring their whole self to work and be conscious of their unique importance and contributions to the firm. We aspire to be a firm where diversity of thought is welcomed and embraced, and recognize how this supports our promise to bring the best solution to our clients and encourage innovation.

Diversity is about each of us, about the variety of unique experiences, qualities and characteristics we all possess. Inclusion is about all of us; creating a culture that embraces, respects and values differences for all of our people. At KPMG, we choose both.

Inclusive Leadership

KPMG’s chairman and CEO, and senior leaders communicate their vision, strategy, and expectations around inclusion and diversity as a business imperative. Our chairman is the Executive Chair, and our Chief Diversity Officer is the Chair of KPMG’s Diversity Advisory Board (DAB). The senior leaders chair the national advisory boards of each of our Diversity Networks. Working together, they help ensure we continue to foster and sustain an open and inclusive work environment, and continuously enhance the recruiting, retention, and advancement of a diverse team of high-performing professionals.

An Integrated Network of Diversity Networks and Councils

KPMG’s seven national diversity networks engage nearly 40 percent of our people. Through nearly 169 employee-driven local councils and chapters, our Abilities in Motion, African-American, Asian Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, KPMG’s Network of Women (KNOW), pride@kpmg (LGBT), and Veterans networks, provide their members with opportunities to participate in career-development programs, broaden professional experiences, and build career-enriching relationships, both within and beyond the firm. At KPMG, we aim to develop the next generation of leaders who value inclusion and diversity.

Supplier Diversity

KPMG recognizes the value and benefits that diverse businesses can bring as suppliers and sub-contractors to the firm, our clients, and our communities. It’s KPMG’s policy to actively seek and encourage qualified diverse businesses, especially minority-, women-, veteran-, and LGBT-owned businesses, to compete for the firm’s business.
