KPMG Australia, a leading professional services firm, is committed to meeting the requirements of all our stakeholders – not only the organisations we audit and advise, but also employees, governments, regulators and the broader community.

KPMG advocates for reforms and policy settings that promote gender equality in Australia. While women do half of all the work in Australia, they continue to face a gender pay, income and superannuation gap.
KPMG’s Gender Equity Series proposes policy settings aimed at shifting the dial in a number of key areas, including parental equity, superannuation, retirement security, childcare, and parental leave.
