KPMG & Condoleezza Rice Developing Future Generations of Women Leaders

Launched in 2016, the KPMG Future Leaders Program is a charitable initiative focused on developing future generations of women leaders. Dr. Condoleezza Rice, the 66th U.S. Secretary of State, serves as the program ambassador. Funded by net proceeds from the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit, the KPMG Future Leaders Program annually awards twenty top female high school seniors the opportunity to enhance their personal growth through college scholarships, a leadership development retreat at Stanford University, mentorship, and an introduction to golf.
