Celebrating our differences
To work at KPMG is to see the world differently, through many different perspectives and with a truly collaborative spirit. We empower our people to be themselves and respect others – its core to our values and what we believe in. This inclusiveness is something we have lived and breathed throughout our history. In short, we are the sum of our people and their stories. It’s who we are.
We believe in a future where everyone feels included, no matter where they work or live, and diversity is embraced, because we believe a future of inclusion is a better future for all.
Diversity means everyone. Discover a strong collaborative culture based on inclusiveness.
Diversity is part of KPMG’s history, going back more than 90 years. That’s when Ethel Watts became the first woman to qualify as a chartered accountant by examination with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW). One of KPMG's founding leaders, Sir William Peat (the P in KPMG), played a crucial role in enabling women to enter into the profession, and his work laid the foundation for Ethel who later went on to work under his son, Sir Harry Peat.
Ethel’s pioneering spirit is alive and well today. We cultivate a sense of belonging for all, regardless of gender identity and expression, sex, race and ethnic background, disability, religion, beliefs or age. It’s this inclusiveness that fosters our collaborative nature and fuels our success in over 150 countries.
