Deloitte Consulting Inclusion Program 2019
Supporting diversity & inclusion
April 18, 2019
Under the theme, The Greatest Time to Matter, the Deloitte Consulting Inclusion Program (DCIP) officially kicked off its three-day conference on January 4 at Deloitte University in Westlake, Texas. This year 48 underrepresented minority MBA students from across the country attended the conference and walked away with valuable insights into the world of consulting at Deloitte.
Developing tomorrow’s leaders
The annual program, which is designed to give underrepresented minority student leaders a first-hand look at the consulting profession, featured a stellar line up of experienced Deloitte professionals and a keynote address from Vernice Armour, the first African-American female naval aviator and combat pilot in the U.S. Armed Forces.
“The goal of DCIP is to expose a diverse group of students to consulting while allowing them to explore unique leadership and career opportunities at Deloitte," shared Jen Nwuli, conference planning team member and technology consultant with Deloitte Digital, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “Students are able to build their network across peers and Deloitte professionals while engaging in activities to identify and enhance new and existing skills.”
Conference attendees also participated in a wide range of professional development activities including a Deloitte leadership panel discussion and a senior consultant straight talk session, where they had the opportunity to talk face-to-face with Deloitte leaders. Participants also engaged in interactive workshops that focused on Business Chemistry ®, brand development, and effective presentation strategies.
"Based on some of the responses from DCIP participants, many referred to the conference as ‘transformative’ because it truly was an opportunity to see how Deloitte professionals use their skills in a variety of ways," shared Jen.
