Moving Forward Together


Priority areas and goals

As we begin this new year, a year that is certain to bring more change, Deloitte remains steadfast in our commitment of fulfilling our organization’s purpose and creating a lasting impact that matters for our people, our clients, and our community.

This report is an important first step on our path forward. We pledge to act on its insights, use the data to inform our decisions, be transparent about our goals, progress toward them, and hold ourselves accountable to our values. Specifically, we commit to the goals on the right for the Deloitte US workforce.

Join us on the journey

For our clients, suppliers, and stakeholders reading this report, we encourage you to ask us questions, share insights, and discuss new ideas. We’ll be better positioned to advance these important goals at both an organizational and a societal level if we work together.

For those of you considering joining our Deloitte team now or in the future, we welcome your exploration of our culture and our commitment to DEI. Ask yourself—and us—if Deloitte is a place where you can connect, belong, and grow.

And for our people, we urge you to hold us to increased transparency and meaningful change. Know that these goals are not exhaustive of the work ahead. Continue to engage and challenge us on how we lead this movement and deliver on the talent experience you deserve.

Most importantly, continue to bring your full and authentic selves to work—and encourage your colleagues to do the same.

Every one of our steps—and even our missteps—has taught us valuable lessons about the value of diversity, equity, and inclusion to Deloitte. It is at the very core of our purpose as an organization and our success as a business. Broadening our array of perspectives, experiences, and capabilities will make us more innovative, better able to serve clients, and more responsive to our communities.

Meaningful change will take effort and dedication from us all. It will not happen overnight, but we are committed to both immediate and long-term action toward a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace for everyone at Deloitte.

"We cannot be the business we aspire to be unless we set a new bar for diversity, equity, and inclusion. That means recognizing that progress doesn’t happen through happenstance or simply through good values. It takes intentionality—by each of one of us, every day."
Dan Helfrich, CEO of Deloitte’s Consulting Business
