Celebrating Black Heritage: KPMG Careers Insight Event
As a follow-up to ICAEW’s Celebrating Black Heritage in Business and Accounting event, KPMG is delighted to invite you to an event on 01 December 2021. This is an exciting opportunity for you to discover more about our firm, gain a deeper insight into our apprenticeship opportunities and find out about the work we’re doing to promote inclusion, diversity and equality.
The session will run virtually from 4-5pm, and will provide a guide to the roles and career pathways we offer. You’ll have the chance to ask our student recruitment team your career-related questions.
You will also hear from our African and Caribbean Employee Network, which works to empower and support colleagues of Black heritage, ensuring they have every opportunity to fulfil their personal and professional development goals. This includes activities linked to our Black Lives Action Plan, launched last year, which sets out a range of new and important initiatives that push for faster and more significant change in our firm.
Virtual Event Details: 4-5pm, 01 December 2021
