Discover a strong collaborative culture based on inclusiveness.

Diversity is part of KPMG’s history, going back more than 90 years. That’s when Ethel Watts became the first woman to qualify as a chartered accountant by examination with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW). One of KPMG's founding leaders, Sir William Peat (the P in KPMG), played a crucial role in enabling women to enter into the profession, and his work laid the foundation for Ethel who later went on to work under his son, Sir Harry Peat.

Ethel’s pioneering spirit is alive and well today. We cultivate a sense of belonging for all, regardless of gender identity and expression, sex, race and ethnic background, disability, religion, beliefs or age. It’s this inclusiveness that fosters our collaborative nature and fuels our success in over 150 countries.
