Life at Deloitte

Dublin Pride 2019

Celebrating Respect and Inclusion 

Deloitte were delighted to celebrate Pride again this year, with a myriad of activities. We sponsored the HIV Red Ball and look forward to organising an HIV awareness talk later in the year. We had a rainbow day fundraiser for HIV Ireland. We raised our Pride flag on top of the Deloitte Ireland head office for the month of June and displayed postcards with inspirational LGBT+ quotes at all our coffee docks. The month ended with our popular family brunch event with great food and atmosphere before the Dublin Pride parade.

Respect & Inclusion at Deloitte is designed to foster an environment where everyone can bring every aspect of themselves to work, excel, share ideas and where difference is welcomed and harnessed.

Hear what Respect & Inclusion means to our people...

Valarie Daunt - Consulting Partner

At Deloitte Respect and Inclusion is key to everything we do. Ensuring our LGBTA employees can be themselves is a priority for our leaders and something they are accountable for. As a Partner, I’m personally very committed to being an advocate and ally for all our LGBT employees. We know that diversity contributes to better decision making and a happier workplace, which is why we work at ensuring we are truly inclusive and ensure all issues are been discussed at the CEO level.

Michael Hartwell - Audit & Assurance Partner

Respect & Inclusion is all about being in an environment in which everyone can be confident to excel.

Anthony Day -  COO of Deloitte Blockchain

At Deloitte you can meet individuals from every walk of life and background, but we connect as teams, as communities, with common goals, common purpose and without discrimination. It’s a truly inspiring place to work.


Jeremy Goldwater - Manager in Consulting

“As well as helping to build cultural awareness, inclusive workplaces drives innovation and diversity empowers team performance.”


Sohini Basu - Analyst in Consulting

You might feel too foreign for here but that’s the unique feature. You are diverse, dynamic and independent. So, escape the ordinary and do what you can with what you have and whatever enriches your soul.

Mark Horgan - Senior Consultant in Consulting

Diversity at Deloitte is our strength. Having people be themselves, whatever their background or life experiences means we can make better decisions for our clients.


Cormac Hughes - Consulting Partner

The most enjoyable thing about working with Deloitte is getting to be part of a diverse and talented team – we respect each other, and are committed to shared success.


Daryl Hanberry - Tax Partner

Bring yourself to work rather than try and fit into what you think others want you to be. People should respect and appreciate you for who you are and what you bring to Deloitte.


Dane Hickey- Manager in Audit & Assurance

At Deloitte I feel like I can colour with all the crayons in the box. I am free to bring my full self to work in a truly inclusive environment.


As part of our Deloitte networks, our LGBTA network provides support and a shared sense of belonging for our LGBTA community, champions LGBTA recruitment, development & advancement and plays an important role in profiling our LGBTA agenda, educating our people and connecting with the Deloitte community and broader LGBTA community.

We have created a short film to help everyone at Deloitte think about their personal responsibility to treat people with respect and to judge others on the value they do, and can, bring.
