Diversity, Inclusion and Leadership

Deloitte offers a strategic approach to diversity, inclusion and leadership. Discover our approach and explore our thought leadership and research below. By Juliet Bourke - Consulting, Partner.

At Deloitte, we understand how important diversity, inclusion and leadership are to your overall business infrastructure and the experience of your employees. We offer a strategic approach that meets the specific needs of your business, creates sustainable change and leads to a higher-performing workplace.

Where to start

Deloitte has integrated diversity into a broader range of human capital offerings. Whether the issue is workforce planning, M&A integration, strategy execution or leadership development, we offer clients the opportunity to approach diversity from a number of different angles.  

What's our motivation

We know that: Diversity + Inclusion = Improved business outcomes

To meet business objectives, all employees must be provided with the opportunity to meet their potential. It is the combination of diversity and inclusion that makes the difference, and our aim is to help clients eliminate or reduce individual and organisational biases which undermine this connection.

What's our approach

We start with understanding an organisation’s strategic priorities – such as transformational change, increased productivity, enhanced customer connectivity, greater levels of innovation – and then we design a diversity and inclusion strategy. Our advice is based on our multi-faceted strategic framework, which helps us to asses alignment between vision, systems and processes and leadership for example. Speaking plainly, we:

  1. help organisations identify and select the moves they need to make to accelerate change and achieve their vision, 
  2. work with leaders and teams to develop personal capability
  3. adjust systems and processes to reinforce diversity and inclusion outcomes
  4. review and develop metrics to assess change.    

Our ideas are based on the insights generated by academic and applied research – many of which we share via our thought leadership, monthly Diversity, Inclusion and Leadership newsletter and blog.
