Message from Group CEO

At Deloitte Tohmatsu Group, we have been making various initiatives to achieve an inclusive work environment, and our support on LGBT+ is one of them. We do not accept any discrimination, we do understand the diversity in sexual orientation and gender identity to respect each other, and have been trying to achieve the work environment where all our Partners and Members can proudly work and keep being their good selves. We will continue thriving for the better, by creating such work environment where all of us with various background can work as their good selves, and where they can perform their best to contribute to our clients and our entire society’s growth and development.

Review of LGBT+-friendly Rules and Regulations, and Facilities (including All Gender Unisex Bathroom)

We performed a review of the rules and regulations with the objective of creating a LGBT+-friendly  environment.  With regards to corporate fringe benefit eligibility (spousal maternity leave, occasional leave, congratulatory or condolence allowances), same-sex partners are defined as "spouse". On each of the floors of the Marunouchi Nijubashi Office, we have installed restrooms that can be used by anyone, regardless of gender.

We have LGBT+ Guideline and “Transgender (Transition) Guideline” for all the members to deepen the understanding.

LGBT+ Study Sessions and Training

We hold study sessions and trainings including e-learning courses for all the members working at Deloitte Tohmatsu Group, from CEO to newly joined members in order to deepen the understanding and obtain accurate knowledge of SOGI and LGBT+. We also have a knowledge management system so that anyone regardless of SOGI can provide those trainings.

We have established a consultation team where LGBT+ members and project team members with LGBT+ members in their team, can consult various LGBT+-related problems.

Ally Network

We have a group-wide Ally network, called “Deloitte Tohmatsu Rainbow (DTR),” composed of LGBT+ members and Ally members.
