Fresh and innovative identity

Strengthen an authentic, fresh and innovative external and internal identity that celebrates KPMG’s inclusive culture and diverse workforce, and is memorable and inspiring to our people, our clients and the communities we serve. 

We believe we have an opportunity and responsibility to be an authentic and memorable voice on inclusion and diversity for all of our stakeholders; to combine, align and magnify the many voices of inclusion and diversity.

Women’s Voices
A social media video campaign at and around the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos showcased women from business, the arts, the media and academia sharing their views on three main themes.

  1. The positive role women and girls play in creating a shared future in a fractured world.
  2. The combined force girls and women can bring to bear to strengthen cooperation and break down barriers for all.
  3. Their personal beliefs and purpose in helping to create true equality for all.

Follow the hashtag #futureisinclusive on social media.

“KPMG created a platform whereby everyone in Davos is watching my video… my mailbox is full with investors and clients ready to procure and assist with expansion.”

KPMG in Germany  

Diversity Day

On 5 June this year, KPMG in Germany celebrated Diversity Day together with over 600 other German organizations with a week of virtual campaigns on topics of unconscious bias and inclusive decision-making.  

The week of activities coincided with the relaunch of their inclusion and diversity website featuring selfie-videos. Internally a playful series of quizzes challenging stereotypical ways of thinking culminated in a Diversity Day video with KPMG in Germany personnel.

Press for Progress

International Women’s Day is a day of celebration and an opportunity to galvanize and include all our people. 

This year’s IWD theme, Press for Progress, called for collective action and a shared responsibility to drive change and build a more inclusive future for all. Our people were encouraged to submit their personal pledges on how they would drive change and encouraged to share their pledge on social media.  

‘Learn from an expert’ virtual classrooms were hosted by leading inclusion and diversity professionals sharing practical advice on how we can drive change.

International Women’s Day

Every year, KPMG personnel come together on International Women’s Day on March 8 to champion equality for all women. From local events, to our people from around the world pledging on how they’ll personally drive change, the response from our network is overwhelming. The commitment our people demonstrate is a sign of the ever-increasing need to create an inclusive future for all.

For the first time ever this year, we enabled our people to share their pledges on social media. Since International Women’s Day, we’ve been holding sessions throughout the year where experts in the Inclusion & Diversity field discuss practical ways to put each of the pledges into action. 

6,000+ of our people pledged how they’ll drive change
84 member firms participated in the campaign

Global Female Leaders Outlook — a platform for diverse perspectives

“Many KPMG clients recognize diversified teams are a means of success in these disruptive and challenging times. One way we can reinforce the need for better gender balance in leadership is to highlight the different opinions and views that greater gender diversity brings.”

Key findings from the-survey chart

Many studies show that gender diversity has a positive effect on corporate success. Mixed teams tend to be more successful, because they consider different experiences and perspectives. The 2018 KPMG Global Female Leaders Outlook reveals how global female leaders from 42 countries and territories assess future economic developments, the challenges of digitalization and their personal career development.
