Deloitte Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion consulting services​

Activating a more equitable future

Deloitte takes a systems-based approach to unlock value, orchestrate equitable outcomes, and promote belonging for all people across our clients’ workforces, their marketplaces, and society.

We help you create a more equitable future

Today, we support clients with diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) challenges, architecting transformative journeys that enable a more equitable future.

We believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are challenges that require human-centric solutions, centering on the needs of those who are most historically marginalized. We have learned that equity is a systemic outcome that is a product of diversity, inclusion, and anti-oppression. And we know that sustainable change happens in an ecosystem of aligned leaders and strong governance. Deloitte’s DEI services address root causes and interrelationships of systemic problems to drive outcomes and impact—both within and outside of your organization.

Leaders face pressure from workers, the marketplace, and society at large to do something different tomorrow. Deloitte can help.

Deloitte’s differentiated point of view informs our approach to DEI consulting

Deloitte’s Equity Activation Model (as published in The Equity Imperative in 2021), acknowledges that business leaders today are facing unprecedented pressure—and therefore have unprecedented opportunity to create a more equitable future both within and outside of their own organizations. The model (see below) outlines the specific actions that every organization can take to activate equity with three interconnected spheres of influence—the workforce, the marketplace, and society.

Equity is the systemic outcome for which organizations can strive. Belonging is the outcome for every individual that comes from a more equitable system. And the everyday actions organizations can take around diversity, inclusion, and anti-oppression can enable these outcomes.

This fundamental framework serves as the foundation for all of Deloitte’s DEI services.

We bring deep subject-matter knowledge alongside tested business acumen

Our diverse team of diversity, equity, and inclusion specialists bring perspectives across industries, sectors, and geographies and draw on the power of Deloitte’s leading practices, proprietary tools, and experience advising the world’s most influential organizations.

Key terms and definitions:

  • Equity: The outcome of diversity and inclusion wherein all people have fair access, opportunity, resources, and power to thrive, with consideration for and elimination of historical and systemic barriers and privileges that cause oppression. Equality, by comparison is when all people are treated identically, without consideration for historical and systemic barriers and privileges.
  • Diversity: The representation, in a group, of various facets of identity, including (but not limited to) race, ethnicity, nationality, gender identity, LGBTQIA+ status, socioeconomic status, ability, religion, and age.
  • Inclusion: The actions taken to understand, embrace, and leverage the unique strengths and facets of identity for all individuals so that all feel welcomed, valued, and supported.
  • Anti-oppression: The theory, strategy, and active practice of confronting individual and institutional power and privilege to consistently challenge and dismantle exclusionary and oppressive systems, policies, practices, and organizational values. Anti-oppression recognizes the pervasiveness and seriousness of oppression and actively seeks to challenge, eliminate, and prevent it.
