Preparing futures for a world of opportunity
WorldClass is a Deloitte global initiative, committed to preparing fifty million futures for a world of opportunity. By inspiring increased commitment and investment in education, skills development, and access to opportunity, we are empowering New Zealanders and people around the world to participate in the new world economy.
At Deloitte, we are inspired by the promise of the new world economy. Its acceleration of technology and digitisation across all aspects of life present incredible opportunity. We are preparing people, and the organisations they are part of, to be ready for the prosperity and progress it offers. Our work developing leading-edge business solutions, bringing fresh perspectives to clients, and training the next generation of business leaders is an important first step. It is not enough.
In New Zealand, WorldClass builds on the strengths of our existing social programmes. It also recognises the impact we make through providing market-leading client services and developing our talented people at every level. WorldClass is also about collaboration and partnership. We already work alongside educators, not-for-profit leaders and government organisations to expand position educational outcomes, skills development and work opportunities. We are focused on continuing to cement and expand these key relationships.
We will make an impact that matters in line with the timeframe for achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are committed to reaching this target by 2030. WorldClass supports the goals focused on inclusive and equitable education and lifelong learning (SDG4), sustained economic growth and decent work for all (SDG8), reducing inequality within and among countries (SDG10) and revitalising the global partnership for sustainable development (SDG17).
