In a marketplace defined by complexity, disruption and change, today’s most successful businesses are those that bring diverse perspectives and experiences to each new challenge. Inclusion and diversity offers a compelling business case, as well as a strategic advantage – especially at the leadership level. It is important for businesses to clear the path for talented and dynamic leaders to rise to the top so that those entering the industry have strong likeminded role models to look up to.
At KPMG in Canada, we believe in the importance of creating a work environment where women can thrive, and implementing initiatives that support, advance, retain and reward them. Our commitment to empowering women has resulted in a steady increase in female representation across our global network. While we recognize that there is more work to be done, we’re committed to furthering our progress on gender parity. We instilled these beliefs, and our corporate values, into the “Gender Inclusion & Diversity Toolkit” that we collaborated with CME on in 2019.
Diversity is about each of us, about the variety of unique experiences, qualities and characteristics we all possess. Inclusion is about all of us; creating a culture that embraces, respects and values differences for all of our people. At KPMG, we choose both.
