June 22, 2022 – Today, in conjunction with the KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit, the Firm released Advancing the Future of Women in Business: The 2022 KPMG Women's Leadership Summit Report. This fourth annual study examines how leaders today are being leaned on to provide stability amidst uncertainty.
Participants included more than 1,100 high-performing executive women who are 1-2 career steps away from the C-suite, with broad leadership experience representing various industries from Fortune 500 companies. The findings examine how leaders today are being leaned on to provide stability amidst uncertainty.
"The effects of the global pandemic linger, bringing far-reaching changes and uncertainty for businesses and the workforce. From burnout, talent shortages and the Great Resignation to climate change, geopolitics and inflation, today’s leaders are facing a myriad of risks and concerns. As an organization that advises the world’s leading companies, we at KPMG believe that trust is essential to driving long-term sustainable growth and driving meaningful change for society," said Laura Newinski, KPMG U.S. Deputy Chair and COO.
