Education and COVID-19 Response
As a signatory to the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles, we are committed to promoting gender equality through education, training and other community initiatives. We participate in volunteering programs which educate and mentor girls and women, and also aim to consider gender in our wider education and learning community support programs. Further, we will look to harness our experience from Equal Measures 2030 (- an independent civil society and private sector-led partnership which connects data and evidence with advocacy and action to fuel progress towards gender equality).

As this crisis impacts every aspect of our lives, KPMG believes that its support for communities must be focused. We are therefore prioritizing education which is our critical long-term corporate citizenship priority, in addition to health and wellbeing given the nature of the crisis.
KPMG's Covid-19 education activity includes new initiatives as well as taking our existing support online whenever possible, including:
• Providing UNESCO with pro bono resources to progress the Coalition’s missions.
• Virtual learning support to students including cyber safety training, free online coding courses, subject tuition, online study groups, e-mentoring and practice interviews.
• Donation of funds, laptops and books to support education not-for-profit organizations.
Our contribution to the Coalition’s missions will harness the education and lifelong learning experience we have developed through our pro bono and volunteering work, our role as a learning provider, and our provision of professional services to the education sector.
