KPMG New Zealand

“Tackling the hard stuff.”

Matt Prichard, Executive Chair

“At KPMG our purpose is fuelling the prosperity of New Zealand for all New Zealanders. That purpose drives us to focus on equity of outcomes, and to address inequity in our workplace and through the work that we do. Real progress on inequity can only be achieved if we can attract and retain people who bring a diversity of perspective and experiences to their work. We’ve introduced new programmes over the past three years around parental leave, and strengthened our Kiwa, Pride, Accessibility, Ethnicity, Gender, and other affinity networks. Our biggest challenge remains broadening the gender, ethnic and other diversity of our partner group, which is changing dramatically through an Executive and Board focus on recruiting, developing, and retaining talent at this level. Progress on that goal is co-dependent on growing the confidence of all our people that they belong in our firm and in that leadership group.”
