I have always believed there are no limits on how great KPMG can be – especially when our people feel free to bring their full, authentic selves to work every day; sharing their ideas and passions in ways that enrich our culture, spur innovation, bring value to our clients, strengthen our communities, and drive the firm’s success.
These are transformative times, with unprecedented challenges and unlimited opportunities. Today’s environment requires fresh thinking, new combinations of skills and experiences, and a higher level of teaming and collaboration in the ways we serve our clients. That’s why I believe deeply in KPMG’s approach to diversity and inclusion.
Diversity and inclusion influence everything we do – how we recruit, train, and grow our people, orchestrate the delivery of our work, engage in corporate citizenship, and build public trust. It’s what empowers us to confidently articulate a vision in which KPMG is the “Clear Choice – with our people, our clients and the public” – because we can address each constituency with a compelling value proposition:
I’m proud to say that our people at every level of the firm take ownership for creating a diverse and inclusive culture – leading and inspiring KPMG’s workforce, enabled by a framework of national diversity advisory boards and local networks. Together, we help create an environment of dialogue and action, addressing the challenges and capturing opportunities that matter most to our firm, our clients, and our communities.
Ultimately, a diverse and inclusive culture spurs innovation and drives our growth because it attracts and empowers top talent who inspire each other – and our clients – with richer points of view to deliver real value. It’s an intrinsic and vital part of who we are. Our achievements as a firm in these areas give me the confidence that we can do even more, and I’m excited about what we will achieve together.
