Deloitte Belgium is celebrating Pride!

Be your authentic self

GLOBE, Deloitte’s LGBT+ network, supports our overall goal of building an environment in which all our people feel valued, accepted, and able to be their authentic selves. By rallying together throughout the year, our LGBT+ members and allies meet and discuss relevant topics around Diversity and Inclusion with interesting keynote speakers with the aim to provide all of our professionals with the opportunity to grow.

We’re celebrating Pride because we recognise that having a diverse workforce will make us stronger and more impactful. When people come together and contribute different strengths, views, and backgrounds, we all win. To foster inclusion is one of Deloitte's shared values, and we recognise that our diversity represents an enormous opportunity. Having a strong sense of belonging has never been more important than now, in a world rocked by COVID-19. With Pride events across the world having been cancelled due to the pandemic, it is all the more important for us to take part in the virtual Antwerp Pride 2020.

 

Celebrating Antwerp Pride 2020

We were looking forward to celebrating both Belgian and Antwerp Pride again this year. Unfortunately, the organisers had to cancel Belgian Pride due to COVID-19, so we’re focusing all our efforts as proud sponsor on making Antwerp Pride 2020 from 5 to 9 August a success!

The theme of this year’s virtual commemoration and celebration of the long journey the LGBT+ community has made towards acceptance and equal opportunities is Together we Pride

We want everyone to feel able to be their authentic self at work - to have a voice, be respected, and achieve, regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexuality or any other characteristic.
Inge Diels, Chief Talent Officer

Deloitte Belgium is joining GLOBE networks across North West Europe and Deloitte Global. Our network is open to all Deloitte professionals whether they identify as LGBT or allies.
