When people are able to bring their whole, un-edited self to work, it unleashes their potential and allows them to truly flourish.
However, for many LGBTI+ Australians, the above situation is not commonplace, with some feeling compelled to remain in the closet at work for fear of professional roadblocks or worse.
Deloitte is a firm which proudly fosters an environment of diversity and inclusion; we are building a culture where all our employees can come to work with their authentic selves and not have to worry about whether they won’t be accepted due to their race, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity.
By creating a workplace where everyone feels the psychological safety that allows them to be who they are – with ease – it increases employee engagement, drives creativity and innovation and ultimately, gives Deloitte the edge to deliver more for our clients.
GLOBE is Deloitte Australia's gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex (LGBTI+) leadership forum and member community. GLOBE’s vision is to create an inclusive work environment where our LGBTI people can be their authentic selves and set out to achieve their career goals regardless of how they identify.
Led by Consulting Partner Robbie Robertson, the GLOBE Advisory Group comprises several LGBTI+ ‘Out Role Models’ from a number of business units who collectively determine our LGBTI+ inclusion strategy.
What we do
GLOBE’s activities support our overall goal of building an environment in which all our people feel valued and accepted. The GLOBE working group meets monthly to coordinate activities, training and awareness sessions throughout the firm.
During the year we celebrate events like the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) and Wear It Purple Day. Additionally, we are involved in other community events as detailed below.
