D2international (D2i)

Developing our people, developing our world

D2international (D2i) is Deloitte Government and Public Service’s (GPS) flagship international social impact program. We were founded on the belief that doing good is good business. After a decade of consulting and advisory projects with non-profits and social enterprises across the world, helping them tackle a variety of wicked problems, we are just as confident in that belief.

World Economic Forum (WEF) Global Alliance: This D2i team began in 2020 as a COVID-19 Research Team, with a goal of understanding how nonprofits and social enterprises have responded to the pandemic, especially as it relates to technology, and identifying potential future scenarios that may emerge over the next 2-3 years to help organizations navigate the continued pandemic-related uncertainty. The team engaged over 75 unique social enterprises, ecosystem builders, and subject matter experts to create a cross-sector, scalable tool that social entrepreneurs can use to run a diagnosis on their needs as an organization.
As of March 2023, D2i is supporting the WEF Global Alliance in their efforts to further engage the private sector in partnerships with social entrepreneurs. Given its ambition to grow the number of private sector members to 100 companies, the Secretariat requires a well-designed value proposition for private sector actors to engage; a clear overview of mechanisms for companies to partner with social entrepreneurs; and efficient processes to facilitate engagement at that scale. D2i will partner closely with the WEF to develop both a Playbook and a Report on Engagement Strategies to foster the relationship between the private sector and social entrepreneurs.
