Diversity has been an important part of KPMG culture since its establishment in Kazakhstan, starting with the 1996.

KPMG Law is committed to recruiting, developing, retaining and promoting talented lawyers and staff with diverse backgrounds and experiences. At KPMG, diversity encompasses a variety of characteristics, lifestyles and perspectives; including race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, age, education, disability, socio-economic status, family and marital status. We firmly believe that our inclusive environment is essential to both the quality of our client service and the personal satisfaction of our lawyers and staff. The result of our commitment is a team of lawyers and staff who are diverse as individuals but unified by our enthusiasm for serving our clients through the practice of law in our communities.

We recognize that a diverse team makes us stronger and more effective. Diversity is not just a business practice; it reflects who we are, individually and as a firm, and how we live our lives outside of the workplace. Our leadership role in diversity within the legal community requires us to not only support diversity within our firm but to also promote the principles of diversity in the communities in which we live.

In terms of hiring, we strive to find innovative and creative ways to expand our candidate pool of diverse students in connection with our recruiting efforts. For instance, time to time, we do lecturing in various universities, thereby interesting students in our firm.

Once hired, we work to ensure that all lawyers are supported and encouraged to grow by participating actively on cases. We want our lawyers and staff to feel part of the team on day one. We also survey our lawyers twice a year to identify the experience they have attained during that period of time and to ensure that each obtains development opportunities and case responsibilities commensurate with her or his level.

We also have a mentorship program, which means every lawyer has its mentor, who supports, advises, directs and evaluates performance. This helps lawyers to feel supported and developed in the right direction.

Well-being of our lawyers and staff is very important for us. Thus, we arrange diverse health and entertainment programs, f.e. yoga classes and running marathons.

Every member of the KPMG Law accepts responsibility for and does his or her part to fulfill our firm’s commitment to equity. We want all of our lawyers and staff to feel that our firm is a place where they are appreciated for the diverse talents and points of view that they bring to our team, and that they are treated with consideration and respect.
