Monitor Institute by Deloitte perspective on diversity, equity, and inclusion
Monitor Institute by Deloitte supports nonprofit, foundation, and corporate clients in addressing many of the world’s most pressing societal challenges. Issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI)1 are often inextricably linked to these challenges, so we—as a team and individually—are committed to actively integrating DEI considerations into our work and thinking. This means continuously deepening our understanding of the historical and current structures that can contribute to these challenges, increasing our capacity as professionals and human beings to recognize and address our unconscious biases, developing approaches to productively engage our clients in their thinking about DEI, and intentionally working to increase inclusion and the diversity of our own team and leadership. We recognize that this is an ongoing journey and may look different for each individual and/or organization, but strongly feel that a commitment to reflection and deliberate attention to DEI is essential to helping our clients make a meaningful and lasting impact on the world.
