NEW YORK, MAY. 6 – Currently in the U.S., less than 5% of S&P 500 companies have female CEOs. To help address this leadership gap, the KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit, now in its fifth year, continues to build a pipeline of women leaders on the path to the C-suite. Through high-impact leadership development content, access to today’s top leaders, and year-round cohort groups, KPMG aims to equip these women to advance in their career journeys. KPMG today announced that the 66th U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, KPMG U.S. Chairman and CEO Lynne Doughtie, and Two-time Olympic Gold Medalist and Two-time FIFA Women’s World Cup Champion Mia Hamm will share their career experiences as leaders at this year’s Summit on June 19.
CEOs from more than 80 of the world’s leading brands have selected women executives from their organizations to attend the KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit and learn from highly accomplished leaders in the worlds of business, politics, sports, and the media.
“At KPMG, our commitment to advancing, developing, and empowering women extends beyond our organization and into the broader marketplace,” said KPMG U.S. Chairman and CEO Lynne Doughtie. “The KPMG Women’s Leadership Summit is focused on advancing more women into the C-suite. In each of the last five years, the marketplace response has been overwhelmingly positive. We’re thrilled to have the CEOs of so many major organizations joining our efforts in building a strong pipeline of C-suite women leaders.”
