KPMG are once again proud sponsors of Nordic Women in Tech Awards which recognizes and celebrates all the skilled female role models working in tech in the Nordic countries. This year, we will be hosting the event at our office in Copenhagen, and we can’t wait to finally be able to gather physically with a celebration of all the nominees and winners!

For us at KPMG, it is extremely important to support inclusion and diversity in the workplace and to also encourage women to pursue a career in the technology sector. Therefore, we have also initiated the Balance Initiative, which works toward creating better balance in our colleagues lives through initiatives that supports a flexible work environment, parental support, diversity supporting initiatives etc.

One of the founders of The Balance Initiative is Mie Holmbo Hansen, Manager at KPMG NewTech. This year, Mie has been nominated as Digital Leader of the Year, and she emphasizes why putting focus on women working in tech is so important:

All should have equal opportunities in life. Also, when it comes to which interests and careers to pursue. Being a mom to a little girl, I hope that she can grow up in a world where she is not biased towards certain interests, career fields, types of sports, etc. All our young girls should grow up in a world where only the sky is the limit. For myself, I hope to be a role model for other women who aspire to innovate, work with cool tech and better society using new technology, and show that we are just as capable as our male counterparts.
