Life at Deloitte
Diversity and inclusion
Giving everyone the chance to shine
We embrace diversity. The varied backgrounds, cultures, experiences and abilities of our people are vital to who we are. They make our offices richer, more inspiring places to be. They make our solutions stronger and our ideas more innovative. Diversity makes us better. Which is why we do everything we can to create an environment that welcomes difference, in all its many forms.
We place a high value on the important contribution women make to our business, but acknowledge they may face additional barriers or challenges to success. As a result, we have various initiatives to give women the visibility they need to build peer networks and evolve into leaders.
Our aim is to empower Deloitte women to make an impact in the firm and the community, across three strands.
- Diversity & Inclusion: Cultivating a culture of gender diversity and inclusion to support the well-being and work-life choices that our practitioners make.
- Growth: Creating a nurturing and entrepreneurial environment to assist our practitioners in reaching individual professional goals.
- Aspiration: Connecting within the wider community to unleash the full potential of women everywhere.
We recognize the impact that Deloitte’s women have made in many ways, including the annual Deloitte Women of Impact award. This acknowledges achievements such as delivering exceptional results for a client or driving major innovations and improvements. We also help women to advance through internal and external mentoring programs, as well as networking and participation in social and community activities; share the success stories of Deloitte women in leadership; and offer various well-being and career coaching programs aimed specifically at women.
The Generation Young Council
At Deloitte we value all perspectives and commit to continuously developing leaders of the future. In particular, we see the next generation as a source of ideas – of bright new thoughts, unheard-of approaches and solutions that challenge everything that has gone before.
That’s why we created the Generation Young Council. This internal community brings together brilliant young people from across Deloitte to create a breeding ground for collaboration and innovation. Management teams seek out the Council’s opinion on innovative ideas, cultural initiatives and new ways of working.
