Being rigorous about fairness and removing bias in how we recruit, and in how we manage, evaluate and reward performance. We recruit the best irrespective of difference. 34% of our graduate intake is from minority ethnic backgrounds.

We offer great maternity and paternity support before and after parental leave, adoption and dependant leave, workshops for maternity returners to work and access to emergency childcare for all parents at KPMG.
Recognising it’s not always easy to be yourself, particularly if you feel you’re in a minority. We’ll put you in contact with role models and mentors who will share their own experiences of diversity, inclusion and success. We’re particularly proud of our flagship leadership programme for women that puts mid-career women in contact with successful senior role models whilst supporting them in building the confidence, networks and ambition necessary to succeed at KPMG. One recent participant described it as ‘one of the best investments of my time ever’. We are constantly looking at ways to innovate our development programmes.
Encouraging our staff to celebrate their culture and be proud of whom they are. During the year our people take part in events to mark the following: Chinese New Year, International Women’s Day, IDAHO, London Pride, Ramadan, Rosh Hashanah, Hanukkah, Black History Month, Diwali and Christmas.
