True gender parity helps us do our best work.

True gender parity helps us do our best work.

At KPMG every individual counts, so it follows that we believe we can make a difference for all women. That's why increasing the number of female employees and leaders at KPMG is central to our Inclusion & Diversity strategy. This commitment has resulted in our global workforce being made up of nearly 50 percent women.

We celebrate International Women’s Day by asking our people to publicly pledge their personal commitment to helping women and girls achieve their full potential. In 2016 more than 1,200 of our people committed to take personal action, and we continue to build on this collective desire to empower change.

KPMG is committed to elevating and empowering women in business. We are proud to host the KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit in conjunction with the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, a world-class major golf championship. Each year, the event brings together top leaders in business, politics, sports and the media with the next generation of women leaders. The aim is to inspire them in their careers and encourage their advancement to the C-suite. Proceeds from both the championship and summit fund the KPMG Future Leaders Program, focused on developing future generations of women leaders through college scholarships, mentoring programs and a leadership development retreat at Stanford University with Dr. Condoleezza Rice, former US Secretary of State.

Our commitment to female empowerment has produced results across our global network. Women's representation in our workforce has increased steadily over the last few years, particularly in emerging markets. Of course, we recognize that more must still be done, but we're committed to furthering our progress on gender parity. See how we've done so far:
