Jackie Daylor, National Managing Partner – Audit Quality Professional Practice for U.S. audit, tax and advisory firm KPMG LLP, was among 77 women leaders honored from companies on FORTUNE’s annual list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For and Best Workplaces for Women.
Great Place to Work presented the award on the eve of the 107th International Women’s Day at its inaugural awards gala in San Francisco. The recipients were recognized by Great Place to Work for their contributions to their company’s business that fully lives its values in the service to clients, employees and stakeholders.
KPMG Chairman and CEO Lynne Doughtie nominated Daylor, who was a guiding force behind the creation of KPMG’s Audit 90 Experience and who serves as a mentor in the firm’s Stacy Lewis Rising Stars Invitational program – two initiatives that enhance development and retention of women in the firm’s Audit practice.
“Jackie exemplifies our focus on quality, people, values and culture,” said Doughtie. “She delivers an extraordinary client experience and inspires a passion for audit quality in our professionals. I applaud her strong leadership and commitment to ensuring KPMG is a great place to work.”
In announcing the honorees, Great Place to Work CEO Michael C. Bush said, “We are excited to celebrate the achievements of some of the top women leaders at America’s greatest companies. The companies on FORTUNE’s list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For and Best Workplaces for Women are leading the conversation in workplace equality and are demonstrating to corporate America how to become more diverse, more innovative, and great places to work for all.”
“The inaugural awards ceremony is part of Great Place to Work’s challenge to inspire every employer and company to become a great workplace for every one of its employees. This maximizes revenue, profit and growth. We are committed to accelerating the maximization of all human potential that is currently underrepresented and disengaged across workplaces, with our first milestone of closing the work experience gap between women and men by 2020,” Bush said.
