It is KPMG’s policy to actively seek and encourage qualified diverse businesses to compete for the firm’s business, to provide equal opportunity to, and to evaluate all suppliers and potential suppliers, regardless of the race, color, creed, religion, age, gender, national origin, citizenship status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, pregnancy, veteran status, genetic information, or other legally protected status of their owners, management, employees, suppliers, or clients.
Supplier Diversity is another area of focus for our firm. KPMG recognizes the value and benefits diverse businesses can bring as suppliers and sub-contractors to the firm, our clients, and our communities. Our Supplier Diversity program has the support of leadership and is underscored by our Supplier Diversity policy to actively seek and encourage qualified diverse businesses to compete for the firm’s business.
KPMG actively encourages our employees’ involvement with these organizations as volunteer board members, committee members, and site visitors, and we’re proud of the success we are experiencing in this area, not only because it reaffirms our commitment to inclusion; it also provides our employees with an opportunity to get involved in diversity in a very tangible, meaningful way. For example, because we are a founding partner of the US Business Leadership Network’s (USBLN’s) Disability Supplier Diversity Program, our employees can volunteer to help the USBLN certify businesses as disabled‑owned, which makes them eligible to submit proposals to and win work with large organizations like KPMG. In fact, volunteer members of KPMG’s Abilities in Motion Network have been a driving force in developing and implementing this certification program, which fills a gap in Supplier Diversity. As a result of their work, KPMG has made its first purchase from one of these certified disabled-owned suppliers.
