Diversity and Inclusion
At Deloitte, we believe that an inclusive mindset and diverse workforce are two of our greatest competitive strengths. That’s why we continue to reinforce our commitment to creating a culture where everyone has equal opportunity to grow, develop, succeed and be their truest selves. This includes holding each other accountable when it comes to always providing a truly inclusive culture; it also includes a focus on increasing gender representation at all levels across Deloitte.
Diversity is a fact. Inclusion is a choice.
We have decided that in order to reach our goals we need to take actions that is the reason Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) week was created. A five day even will take place between 2 - 6 of March and connect all Central Europe employees via webinars and other activities.
D&I week is for anyone with a strong desire to learn and discover more about what it takes to be an inclusive organization today. This five-day event brings forward thinkers, our very own colleagues at Deloitte, innovators and experts in their field with new, thought provoking ways to work, all with the common goal of bettering the way we see each other, treat each other and build a more open culture here in Deloitte.
In addition to Deloitte’s focus on gender diversity, we are also working on other aspects of diversity. For example, we were a proud signatory of a letter of support for the Standards of Conduct for Business in Tackling Discrimination against Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans and Intersex people (the LGBTI Standards) put forth by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. Member firms around the world are active participants in Pride Month. Many Deloitte member firms offer their people opportunities through global business resource groups (BRGs) to connect and build networks with others who share affinity indicators such as gender, race, religion and sexual orientation. Some member firms have also established councils that bridge gaps between single-identity workplace groups, recognizing the importance of intersectionality.
While we are proud of the accolades we have earned and the policies and programs we have implemented to lead in the areas of inclusion and diversity, we understand that this is a journey which requires our continued commitment and focus. Thus, we continue to prioritize our culture, our ways of working and our workplace to ensure that we always promote equality and provide opportunities for all.
