At Deloitte, our aspiration is to create a workplace that embraces each individual for their unique attributes and provides support for different life aspirations, stages and circumstances.

We are firmly committed to gender equity and ensuring we have women leaders, role models and allies in every part of our business, strongly influencing decision-making and change.

“We know that gender equity is not limited to overcoming disadvantages for women. Deloitte is serious about shining a light and overcoming barriers to enable all our people regardless of gender to have an equal opportunity to succeed and realise their full potential. We can all contribute to this, in small ways and large.”

Our goal is to make work work for families. We know many of our people are at the stage of their lives when they’re considering whether to have a family, are embarking on that journey, are new parents or parents of small children. These are wonderful times, but they also bring with them decisions and pressures of balancing life, work and family. Our people have told us that they’re reassessing their careers and considering how they integrate their careers with family life. This is particularly the case for women across Deloitte, who are trying balance having children, working, pursuing a career where they can, making an impact, and life more broadly.

In response, we’ve developed a new approach to help our people. Coupled with DeloitteFlex and our parental leave policy, this new approach – Making Work Work For Families – is about relieving some of the pressure of being working parents.

We’re proud to announce that from 1 June, parents who choose to return to work on a part-time basis will receive additional support payments for 12 months and flexibility in relation to financial KPIs on re-entry into the business for up to 12 months. We’re also taking FamilyFlex to the next level by supporting parents of school aged kids to work more flexibly in school holidays (by compressing or elongating their weeks to spend time with their families). These changes are inclusive of all types of families including birth, adoptive, surrogate, foster and same-sex parents.

Together with a wider package of moves, such as additional leave for fertility treatments or in the unfortunate case of a miscarriage, these will make Deloitte a place where work and life works better for families. We will play our part in achieving gender equity across Australian organisations and we recognise that for every Australian mum or dad we support, another woman is more able to participate in the workforce.

International Women’s Day (IWD), is an annual day on which we celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.

While our focus on gender balance at Deloitte is year-round, IWD also gives us the opportunity to reflect on challenges that still exist when it comes to making gender balance a reality and to highlight solutions to those challenges.

If you were to imagine a world free of bias, what would it look like? What kind of world would you picture? And how would we get there?

This year’s global International Women’s Day theme – #BreakTheBias – asks us all to reflect on these questions.

We can all #BreakTheBias through small actions, which through our own butterfly effect moments, can lead to lasting change. Watch the video below to learn more about how we can all #BeTheButterfly.


Stories from our people

We asked some of our team from across Deloitte to share their experiences of bias – how bias has impacted them and how it left them feeling.
