IT’s Her Future is a dedicated KPMG wide programme designed to tackle gender diversity within KPMG – and beyond.
Essentially, we want to encourage more women into technology careers and to support their ongoing development and progression, whether they’re still at school, just setting out on a career path or are looking to move into the most senior roles. We want to champion change for women in our industry.
The programme is run by a collaborative group of committed people. Together, we’re looking at how we can support women on their way to successful technology careers.
One of the big areas for us is demystifying the idea that technology careers are only for established 'techies'. Our Learning & Development opportunities are there to teach people from every background everything they need to deliver innovative solutions now, and in the future. They’re about nurturing potential.
Through IT’s Her Future, we provide mentors, internal and external events, networking opportunities and targeted training, as well as opportunities to serve as non-executive members of boards, even from a junior level.
This programme is about getting the best out of all our people and opening the door to women who wouldn’t otherwise have considered a career in the field. It’s also about our growth as a firm.
We know the best way to solve complex client issues, deliver quality results and build trust is by embracing diverse perspectives. And the better our gender balance, the better placed we’ll be to do just that.
“Diversity is an untapped superpower which all companies have the power to access.”
Anna Somaiya leads our IT’s Her Future programme, as well as the firm's technology and data strategy. She has been recognised as 2019 Champion for Women at the Women in Banking and Finance for Achievement awards and is nominated as a Rising Star in Digital, in the Rising Star awards 2019.
IT's Her Future Mentoring
We love to collaborate – not just in teams, but in a development sense too. Which is why, as a female joining us in technology, you’ll have the support of a senior leader from the start - a mentor on hand to help you learn and grow.
Propeller Senior Leadership Programme
Female senior leaders are vital to our growth and success. Our Propeller Senior Leadership Programme gives female senior managers tailored development, including exclusive Director-level training and coaching.
Future Leaders Technology Programme
We’re taking our movement beyond the firm. This programme offers work experience for girls in years 9 and 10. They do a ‘tech challenge’, learn to code, hear from our technology experts and are paired with a KPMG graduate mentor.
