Actions speak louder than words. But when it comes to our shared reconciliation journey, making long-term progress demands that our actions be grounded by accountability and transparency.
That’s why I’m proud to share our Reconciliation Action Plan year-two update report: Our progress on the shared path for reconciliation. Since 2020, Deloitte has taken important steps to strengthen trust and rebuild relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples – staying true to our purpose to help and inspire all Canadians to thrive through access to knowledge and opportunities, and our shared values to foster inclusion and to look after each other.
We’ve made steady progress over the past 12 months, led by our incredible Deloitte Indigenous team. We shared our 4 Seasons of Reconciliation training with our clients and communities. We have built meaningful relationships with Indigenous organisations, including critical volunteer and pro bono engagements. And we advanced economic empowerment through our Indigenous Supplier Portal, helping spark new opportunities between Indigenous businesses and Deloitte stakeholders.
We are still building our foundation and remain committed to innovating our hiring models to help attract and retain more Indigenous leaders, while continuing to build a firm that is truly inclusive for Indigenous peoples at every level.
Thank you for reading this report and learning more about our reconciliation journey. We hope that our progress can help and inspire you, and us, together, to make an impact that matters.
