KPMG Malta participates in the annual celebration of International Women’s Day. #balanceforbetter
KPMG Malta took part in the annual celebration of the social, cultural and political achievement of women around the world, for International Women’s Day 2019. The theme chosen for this year is ‘Balance for Better’. It’s a call for collective action to build a future where everyone feels included, and diversity is encouraged.
“The future can only be inclusive if you have a better balance of diversity. We recognize that by working together across our global network, we have the potential to make a huge impact,” explained Doreen Fenech, Head of KPMG’s Social and CSR Committee.
The Committee organised an office get-together on the day to celebrate all women employees, which make up almost 53% of the whole firm. This served as an opportunity for women employees to relax and get a chance to interact with each other, over a drink and some sweets. Finally, before returning to their desks, participants were each handed a flower to honour the Balance for Better campaign.
This activity on Women’s Day was just one way KPMG brought their Global Inclusion & Diversity Strategic Framework to life. At the World Economic Forum in Davos this year, the KPMG Inclusive Voices campaign was launched, following the Women’s Voices campaign of the previous year. In December, the 2018 Inclusion & Diversity Report was also published, highlighting their global commitment to empowering change.
