KPMG is deeply committed to the advancement, development, and empowerment of women. As women break glass ceilings in the workplace and excel on the international athletic stage, the influence of women will only continue to grow and affect our society for the better.
Supporting this commitment, in 2015 KPMG, in collaboration with the PGA of America, the LPGA, and NBC, hosted the first ever KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, to elevate the game of women’s golf, and the KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit, to help advance the next generation of women leaders to senior leadership positions in business. Every year, accomplished women from around the country attend the Summit to participate in discussions about the advancement of women leaders in the workplace.
In 2016, KPMG launched the third pillar of the initiative, the KPMG Future Leaders Program in partnership with Dr. Condoleezza Rice, focused on developing future generations of women leaders. Funded by proceeds from the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and the KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit, the KPMG Future Leaders Program will “pay it forward” to future generations of women leaders by providing leadership training to top high school senior female students from around the country preparing for their college career. The KPMG Future Leaders Program will foster a strong foundation for young women to succeed in college and ultimately in their long-term careers.
The students selected will:
1) Receive a KPMG Future Leaders Scholarship of $10,000 per year for 4 years of college
2) Attend a three-day KPMG Future Leaders Retreat the summer before their freshman year of college, at Stanford University in Stanford, CA (July 15-17). Attendance is mandatory.
3) Actively participate in a one-year KPMG Future Leaders Mentoring Program
Applications are due via email to CRice_FutureLeaders@Stanford.edu by January 31, 2018.
