About us

Deloitte's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Institute

Bold actions for equitable outcomes

Deloitte’s DEI Institute™ provides cutting-edge research, bold points of view, and impactful events that can help business and community leaders drive meaningful change in workforces, marketplaces, and society.

Advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion

While many businesses have focused on becoming more diverse and inclusive, there remains a continued need for actionable, data-based research in advancing equitable outcomes. The focus on equity—with measurable and meaningful outcomes in the workforce, marketplace, and society—has become increasingly critical.

At Deloitte, we believe, as a purpose-driven enterprise focused on DEI, that we have the opportunity and privilege to make a difference and help drive meaningful change in workforces, marketplaces, and society. The DEI Institute builds on Deloitte’s commitment to advance equity for all, focusing on three specific priorities:

  • Driving ground-breaking research on emerging DEI trends and issues, building on seminal research such as The Equity Imperative
  • Convening and collaborating with organizations, thought leaders, academics, and businesses to multiply impact
  • Leveraging Deloitte’s deep experience and extensive network to champion DEI in business and as a corporate citizen

Sustaining equity and belonging for all involves commitment, investment, and action to change systems, processes, and policies. DEI is a journey of continuous improvement. By convening bold perspectives, collaborations and research, the DEI Institute can help companies meet their commitments and the increasing expectations among their workforces and key leaders to drive change.
