Philip Davidson

Philip is a visible and active champion for inclusion at the most senior levels of the firm to ensure that KPMG is a magnet for talent and the clear choice for their clients. He is the Sponsoring Partner of KPMG’s Black Heritage Reverse Mentoring programme, which helps Partners understand the experiences of Black Heritage (BH) colleagues at KPMG, by matching them with a more junior BH Mentor for confidential and supportive discussions. In addition to the programme providing increased exposure to the Partnership, Philip has personally ensured that BH mentors are allocated a Partner Sponsor to help build their internal networks and drive career development. Philip also founded KPMG’s Black Heritage Working Group, which brings together Black Heritage Partners, Head of People, Co-Head of IDSE and the Chair of KPMG’s African Caribbean Network to track progress on FY19 BH targets, deliver specific actions to help advance BH inclusion and provide challenge and critique to internal strategies and campaigns. He sponsored KPMG’s Black Entrepreneurs’ Award (BEA), designed to support Black entrepreneurs and their start-ups to become investment ready beyond the firm, providing winning entrants with investment in their business, a senior KPMG mentor and membership of the Enterprise Nation small business network.
