KPMG member firms around the world join in the annual celebrations of International Women’s Day on 8 March. A series of nationwide activities are arranged to celebrate women’s uniqueness and their contributions.

In 2020, we commemorated the theme #EachforEqual Different offices across China hosted our flagship programme, SHE Inspiring Talk Series, which included leaders from different industries being invited to share their personal and career stories regarding gender issues with our colleagues, alumni and clients. In addition, we organised a photo challenge campaign, where colleagues were invited to take a photo holding their arms in the official International Women’s Day pose, and make a pledge supporting a gender-equal world.

Plan International

As a long-standing partner of Plan International Hong Kong (Plan), KPMG China has been an active supporter of numerous Plan activities under the Because I Am A Girl umbrella, where the KPMG Foundation sponsored two youth programmes and a charity run to raise awareness on girls’ rights:

  • Plan International Hong Kong Youth Conference KPMG volunteers join as facilitators in the discussion, where young people exchange ideas, reflect on the plight of girls in many developing countries and discuss how to help prevent their suffering.
  • Shanxi Girls’ Scholarship and Life Skills Training programme Early marriage is one of the many factors that halts girls’ development. Offering scholarships to students living in poverty allows them to continue learning. In addition, we sponsor courses that focus on life skills, child protection, financial management, career development planning and teamwork for students.
  • Run For Girls KPMG has been the main sponsor of the charity run – which is co-organised by Plan and Cosmopolitan – since its inception in 2017. Over 100 KPMG ladies joined the run in 2019 to support this worthy cause, which raises funds for disadvantaged girls in developing countries.
