The women behind Female Academy
If you join Deloitte Female Academy you enter the core of our culture. You get the opportunity to connect with female employees illustrating the diversity of our business.
Punctual empath and vigorous introvert
Women are awesome if you ask me - but sometimes we just need a kind nudge in the bottom.
I myself participated in the first Female Academy programme in 2018 when I was finishing my studies, and I found it very impactful as a means to explore both Deloitte as a workplace, as well as my own interests and competencies. Moreover, I met so many cool women – both peers and Deloitte professionals that today still constitutes a network of inspiring relations.
Female Academy was a kind nudge to me, and I would like to pass on that experience to other female students. Therefore, the women attending Female Academy 2022 can expect to be nudged in an honest, informal and kind way to discover what kind of career they wish for themselves.

Energetic team player and optimistic globetrotter
One of the most purposeful things I could imagine doing is to help female students find their path within corporate finance. Both because I believe that we as women can contribute with extraordinary and meaningful insights and because the transition from student to a fulltime employment is filled with choices and, as I remember it, insecurities. How is the workload, what is expected from me and how can I continue to develop and not get stuck in during the same thing repeatedly?
My dream for Deloitte Female Academy is to create a female network where we can all develop and learn from each other and from dedicated speakers and visitors. What do you need from Female Academy? We will strive to help whether it is to navigate in corporate finance, your own expectations to yourself or your career, or something completely different.

Rational optimist and curious extrovert
I work with an emphasis on community, commitment and clear responsibility. I listen a lot and at the same time ask a lot of questions and I am convinced that several heads think better than one. I will share my personal experiences and demystify everything about having a career in consulting. At the same time, I expect that you will be engaging, open-minded and challenge us while having fun and building relations.

Analytical problem-solver and curious enthusiast
Until it is not unusual to be in a professional setting with a majority of women, we need to create spaces where women are actively included. Deloitte Female Academy is a great opportunity to meet other ambitious women, with different interest fields but a curiosity for a career in consulting in common. Our goal is to create an environment where you can grow both personally and professionally while learning from each other, inspiring speakers and us - a broad group of women who want to give you the best possible look into our careers in technology, consulting and corporate finance.
At Deloitte I get to explore and work with different technologies. I work with development of web applications, database systems, backend servers and frontends and data analytics. The projects I work on require close collaboration with colleagues as well as clients to solve challenging problems and create innovative solutions.

Curious team player and deliberate optimist
For me, Deloitte Female Academy is about gathering curious and bright minded female students and inspire them to pursue a career with consulting. We will show how every day life looks like in Deloitte and inspire, learn and share insights together. I will try to demystify having a career in tech especially as a woman and help you grow personally and professionally during our sessions with inspiring presenters and insightful learning opportunities.

Challenge-seeking and dedicated problem-solver
As a student, I remember all the insecurities and difficult choices related to choosing my first full-time job. I therefore strive to make Female Academy a community where female students and professionals can ask all sorts of questions in an open environment, and where they can gain valuable insights and build a solid network. Through the different sessions, we aim to inspire the participants and to help them gain clarity of their own career path and personal journey, while supporting each other and having a good time together.

Optimistic team player and curious debater
What struck me when I started working at Deloitte, is how many different types of people with diverse backgrounds collaborate and use their strengths to bring to life great projects. My ambition for Deloitte Female Academy is to welcome curious and open-minded students to a world of possibilities where being the driver for your own career path is in focus. Getting to know your strengths and goals is a long process that can maybe last your entire career – but is it nevertheless a rewarding and useful experience to uncover it - piece by piece.
