Transformation at Deloitte
The journey continues
From as early as the 1970s, Deloitte has been at the forefront of business transformation. We are proud of the fact that for 19 years we have had three consecutive black CEOs, with Lwazi Bam becoming the first African Black CEO in 2012.
Forty years on from the qualifying of South Africa's first black chartered accountant, and more than 20 years on from the advent of our democracy, Deloitte remains as committed as ever to the call for transformation in corporate South Africa.
This is not something we do, this is who we are. We believe that transformation is an important mechanism to:
- Set right the imbalance of the past
- Reflect the country’s demographics
- Create equal opportunities for education and employment
- Create and sustain our culture of inclusion
Deloitte South Africa’s partners and directors have committed to achieving a 51% black ownership target by 2020, with at least 35% female ownership.
While great strides have been made to bridge the inequality gap in South Africa, Deloitte, business, government and society in general all recognise that much more needs to be done. Deloitte is proud of its achievements to date and remains committed to being at the forefront of this change.
