Inclusion, Diversity and Equity
We empower our people to thrive with us.
We believe that everyone should be able to bring their whole selves to work, without fear of it impacting or limiting their opportunities and experiences. Our award winning Breathe network, which celebrate it’s 20 year anniversary in 2022, provides a community of allies that celebrate and promote LGBTQ+ initiatives. And we’re proud to support the wider LGBTQ+ community across the UK, by lending our support to a variety of universities and charities.
These figures are based on those that have declared this information to us (83% of employees).
*Senior colleagues are defined as Exco, Board, Partners and Directors.
Our LGBTQ+ Employee Network, Breathe, aims to create and drive a positive and inclusive environment to support our LGBTQ+ colleagues at KPMG UK, but also foster inclusion in the wider marketplace and community too.
We’ve recently teamed up the Department for Transport and Network Rail to work on joint initiatives that are aimed at improving the experiences of the LGBTQ+ community throughout the UK.
In October 2021, colleagues came together to share their views on how we can champion LGBTQ+ inclusion at work and more specifically on public transport. And to mark World Aids Day in December, which aims to raise awareness and show solidarity for those living with HIV, we raised money for the Terrence Higgins Trust by holding collections at train stations across the country.
“Large firms like KPMG have an important role to play in driving change in wider society and can make a big impact. I’m really proud of the work that we have done and continue to do with other companies in this space. By coming together with other organisations across sectors, we’re more likely to achieve our ambitions around inclusivity and equality.” says Mariana, Co-Chair of our Breathe Employee Network.
