Our people are hired and promoted on the basis of their professional capabilities, knowledge and ideas. We have one of the most genuinely inclusive workforces you will find anywhere. Whatever your gender, religion, ethnicity, age, disability or sexual orientation, you can succeed at KPMG.

 

For me, diversity means that we are all different and unique individuals. We’re all different in our outlook, our thinking and our life experience whatever our background, the environment we grew up in, our culture, our age, or our gender. Diversity enriches any group.

Nearly 40 percent of our people were born overseas. They speak 24 languages other than English. At KPMG we celebrate difference – this may arise from gender, ethnicity, age, disability, religion, and sexual orientation.

 

At KPMG we have a Diversity Advisory Board (DAB) comprised of partners representing all divisions and all locations. The DAB have seven key focus areas; gender, age, disability, indigenous, sexual orientation & gender identity, family and ethnicity & religion. We champion Diversity & Inclusion at the highest levels of the firm.

 

We are very proud of the Diversity & Inclusion program. Some of our proudest achievements are the launch of KGEN – KPMG’s Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender employee network for people who identify within this community and their friends, family and allies.

 

We've been named by the EOWA as an Employer of Choice for Women for six consecutive years and we have world-class women’s only development programs and networking events to ensure we retain all of our talent including women. We now have 50 percent female managers across the firm.

 

Diversity’s all about embracing our differences and creating an environment at KPMG where people can excel. Ultimately, for KPMG to be diverse, we need people who’ve got an open mind and a positive attitude.
