Diverse people are our most important asset. Gender diversity has risen across our leadership ranks with women now comprising 24% of Partners and Directors, strengthened by the percentage of diversity across our new Partner promotions (28% in our top 10 largest firms). We strive for overall gender parity throughout our organization, and of KPMG's total workforce, 47% are women. We have also launched our inaugural Global Inclusion & Diversity Report to further emphasize our focus on creating a truly inclusive and diverse culture as a strategic priority for KPMG.
KPMG is also investing significant time and resource to equip its people with digital transformation skills. In the US work is underway on a new US$400 million learning, development and innovation facility in Orlando, Florida, which is scheduled to open in 2019.
Our priority of citizenship
Corporate citizenship is central to our strategy and identity and through our actions and partnerships we are achieving meaningful impact in our communities. Over the past 12 months the KPMG network and KPMG people have invested more than US$110 million in local communities, and KPMG people have contributed more than 500,000 hours supporting communities, which includes approximately 100,000 hours of pro-bono professional services. We have expanded our focus on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and in particular, SDG 4 - Quality Education and Lifelong Learning.
The KPMG Family for Literacy program continued to expand, with more than 4 million books distributed worldwide, and now partnering with Worldreader to expand digital reading opportunities. The KPMG Cyber Day initiative reached more than 80,000 students in 45 countries with lessons on cyber-security.
We continue to strengthen our Citizenship collaborations with organizations including Junior Achievement, Enactus, One Young World and WE Charity, among others.
