KPMG LLP, the U.S. audit, tax, and advisory firm, has never been shy about its commitment to the full inclusion of LGBT employees. In their effort to move equality forward in the workplace, KPMG has created a roadmap to equality for its industry.

In 1993, KPMG added sexual orientation to its EEO Policy, and added gender identity in 2005. The organization was also among the first in its industry to offer same-sex domestic partner benefits to its employees.

In 2012, KPMG raised the stakes even further when leadership announced that it will offer its U.S.-based LGBT partners and employees tax offsets for additional federal and state tax costs incurred when they pay for same-sex domestic partners’ medical benefits.

The organization also offers a self-ID option in its hiring and annual review process—€”a key new trend in inclusion work—€”and hosts a mentorship program for its LGBT employees.

But the work KPMG does to include and engage its LGBT and ally employees doesn’t end at policies.

Through its Employee Resource Group, PRIDE@KPMG, KPMG celebrates Pride month in all of its offices each June. But, PRIDE@KPMG’s commitment reaches past June and is seen year-round through the group’s sponsorship of educational opportunities for employees in partnership with PFLAG National.
