Empowerment through diversity and inclusion.
Do you flourish when you can be yourself? We do, too.
We hear you. To us, your opinion carries weight. In fact, true diversity at Deloitte only exists if you add your personal perspective to ours. It’s what makes us strong. Learn more about how we’re creating an environment where you are supported and empowered to make a valuable contribution to the bigger picture.
At Deloitte, diversity means embracing everyone’s voice and opinion. We celebrate our differences and combine all of our abilities so that new ideas can blossom. So, what can you expect? Equal opportunities and a culture where you can be yourself and where your ideas matter.
Our people represent almost 60 nationalities, many different backgrounds, career paths, generations and ambitions. We don’t believe everyone has to have a cookie-cutter journey in life or fit into a specific box. Your uniqueness helps us expand our horizons. Together, we can find new ways into the most complex challenges every day.
Collaboration across borders and functions
Do you want to experience true diversity and learn from peers and leaders alike? At Deloitte, you can do just that. Work together in interdisciplinary and intercultural teams in Switzerland and within the global Deloitte network.
After all, it is the ideas emerging from our unique combination of skills, backgrounds, approaches and views that make a real impact. Our diversity is our strength. It enables us to deliver on our purpose of making an impact that matters to our people, clients, and society.
Promoting equality through dedicated programmes and benefits
We stand for equality at Deloitte. The range of measures we have introduced includes, for instance, support and mentoring programmes for women and working parents. We have networks for the LGBTQAI+ community and their allies to foster a safe space and network. And, we have introduced our internal “Find Your Why” sessions so everyone can explore their purpose. Everyone at Deloitte has the same opportunities to develop and grow, regardless of their background and level.
We promote a healthy work-life balance, offering as much flexibility as possible, and the option to go part time at any time. Read more about how we are supporting your work-life balance at Deloitte.
"Our diversity allows us to be truly innovative."

To mark pride this year GLOBE Switzerland has organised a special pride flag with the message "Embracing Diversity." We’ve combined this message with the Progress Pride Flag, which was created by Graphic Designer Daniel Quasar, as we feel this represents our drive for intersectionality within the firm.
The flag includes the LGBTQ full sized color stripes representing life (red), healing (orange), sunlight (yellow), nature (green), harmony/peace (blue), and spirit (purple/violet). Additionally, it includes five half sized stripes representing trans and non-binary individuals (light blue, light pink, white), marginalized POC communities (brown, black), as well as those living with AIDS and the stigma and prejudice surrounding them, and those who have been lost to the disease (black).
In the month of June, our people will be receiving a flag of their own to hang from their balconies in solidarity with the LGBTQAI+ community at Deloitte.
Empowering and connecting our people goes beyond skills and knowledge
Diversity comes in many different forms. That’s why we have launched and support several initiatives that help build a genuinely inclusive environment.
- We celebrate and support our people’s diversity through many dedicated employee networks, including one for women, junior staff, people with a multicultural background, those from the LGBTQAI+ community, and different sports clubs.
- We provide resources and training programmes in support of an inclusive culture and leadership.
- We have established a Female Manager Programme for talented women across all business functions to help them grow, assert themselves as leaders, and widen their scope of influence.
- We have launched a sponsorship programme for female leaders and specific mentoring programmes for women across the firm.
- We are a proud member of Advance (gender equality in business).
- We support mental health and wellbeing at Deloitte with several different programs, such as Energy Month, mindfulness offerings, and employee sports clubs.
- Every year, we celebrate International Women’s Day, The International Day against Homophobia, World Mental Health Day, Pride Month, and many more.

Here’s how our people experience diversity in their everyday lives:
With over 50 different nationalities and many different backgrounds, we are for sure a very diverse organization. Besides obvious elements like making sure that our recruiting processes are de-biased we also invest in specific groups in the firm. For example, our female managers where we have a leadership programme in place to support women in their career. Diversity is about getting different thoughts and backgrounds around the table. Inclusion is making sure that all people are actually feeling at their best in this diverse context. Thanks to that, we can cultivate a truly entrepreneurial spirit. The sky is the limit. If you have an idea, make it happen!
Deloitte Coaching Community Leader
What makes Deloitte a unique place to work is that everybody – regardless of their background - has their own voice to say what he or she wants to say. Everybody can be anybody as long as they truly want to create an impact that matters. I experience this both in my day to day life, where I work with colleagues from all different backgrounds and through the groups and programmes Deloitte has launched. Our “Deloitte CARE” programme helps refugees integrate into professional life in Switzerland and the “Romandie Welcome Day” that I organize with my colleagues helps new recruits settle into the French-speaking part of Switzerland.
People Operations, People & Purpose
What I love most about Deloitte is the ease with which I can be myself. Growing up in a diverse environment has helped me understand the importance of diversity and no doubt also contributed to the importance of being open and honest with myself with respect to sexual preferences. We have an amazing number of role models: openly gay people, working mothers, and so on, who all are examples of how diversity and inclusion are lived in the firm. I also love that we can actively engage in topics that are important to us through networks, where people can come together and have a sense of community. I don’t think about inclusiveness and diversity every day – because we truly live it.
