KPMG is top 10 gay-friendly employer
14 March 2017
KPMG has been named as the top LGBT accountancy employer by Stonewall, the lesbian, gay, bi and trans equality charity.
The Big 4 firm came in at number 10 in Stonewall’s Workplace Equality Index, with PwC placed at number 19 on the list.
The top employer in this year’s index is Lloyds Banking Group.
EY, Accenture and the Home Office remain Star Performers for their unwavering efforts to create inclusive workplaces where staff can bring their whole selves to work.
EY’s Maggie Stilwell said that the firm had recently launched support guidelines on gender identity, expression and transition, to help provide more explicit support for its trans colleagues and their teams. She felt this was an important step on its ongoing journey “to continue to make sure everyone can be themselves at EY”.
Stonewall’s Kris Phelps felt the accountancy profession was underrepresented in the index.
