Life at Deloitte

Our inclusive culture includes you

Inclusion at Deloitte

We are committed to building and leveraging an inclusive culture in everything we do. For many years, we were proud to lead the way when it came to inclusion in the workplace. And we continue to lead because we know that when people feel valued, their motivation and performance soar.

Our vision is to ‘Do Business Inclusively’ which means we are committed to building and leveraging an inclusive culture in everything we do. We continue to pursue this vision in all aspects of our business because we know that when people feel valued, their motivation and performance soar.

Leading and Behaving Inclusively

For us, inclusion is not a stand-alone program, but rather a shift in culture where our people are inclusive leaders.. It’s about understanding how inclusive leadership traits lead to better outcomes, and leading by example every day..

Building an Inclusive Environment

Our inclusion strategy puts a strong focus on creating inclusive work environments where individuals feel comfortable being their authentic selves at work. We know that inclusive workplaces are more innovative and productive. Our commitment to inclusion spans our entire organization and is woven into our values, culture, and business strategy. Our people and leaders believe in the business benefits of inclusion and are committed to leading the way. At Deloitte, everyone is responsible for nurturing an inclusive culture.

The Importance of Community

We believe in a networking culture that opens doors for you in your career. At Deloitte, you will be surrounded by intelligent, forward-thinking people who are committed to a culture of camaraderie. We recognize the power of relationships and strengthening connections with each other. Our people take as much pride in your accomplishments as they do their own. Our people tell us that the connections they make here are a big reason they came to Deloitte and one of the main reasons they stay. One of the ways we build up these lifelong connections is through our Employee Resource Groups (ERG’s), which are employee-driven networks led by our people, for our people. Our ERG’s provide opportunities for education, awareness, advocacy, networking and strengthening external relationships with potential hires and with clients.

Currently our Deloitte Communities include:

Canadian Women’s Initiative (CanWin)
CanWin’s mission is to enhance, promote, and foster the social and economic well-being of women at Deloitte. Our mandate is to recruit, retain, and develop women in an environment where they can maximize their potential. CanWin is the umbrella employee resource group that leads all women’s initiatives at Deloitte, including our marquee events: the annual Women’s Spring Breakfast and International Women’s Day. CanWin also leads many other key initiatives throughout the year to address critical issues that impact women at Deloitte, and all women across the business community.
