KPMG honors inaugural graduating class of KPMG Future Leaders with virtual ceremony
Earlier this month, KPMG proudly celebrated its inaugural class of KPMG Future Leaders at the 2020 KPMG Future Leaders Program Virtual Graduation. The ceremony honored fifteen young women who came from underserved communities and have overcome tremendous adversity in their personal lives. The majority of the students are first-generation college graduates and due to COVID-19 restrictions were not afforded traditional graduations by their universities to be recognized by their family and friends for their remarkable achievements.
KPMG’s ceremony featured appearances from several distinguished guests, including KPMG U.S. Chairman and CEO Lynne Doughtie, KPMG U.S. Chief Diversity & Inclusion officer Michele Meyer-Shipp, Candy Duncan, Chair, KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit and 66th U.S. Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice.
Through scholarships, mentoring and leadership development, the KPMG Future Leaders Program aims to build a strong foundation for these students, who are embarking on careers in Business and STEM tracks, as part of KPMG’s long-term commitment to advance more women and diverse talent in the leadership pipeline.
The KPMG Future Leaders Program is funded by charitable proceeds from the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit which were recently applauded by legendary golf writer Ron Sirak as, “…a beacon for socially relevant sporting events” and “the right tournament at the right time for all the right reasons.”
