Inclusion

A competitive advantage in today's marketplace

In the news: 
"Deloitte applauds the Administration’s announcement that the President will sign an Executive Order ensuring protections for LGBT employees of federal contractors from workplace discrimination. Inclusion is a source of opportunity, enrichment, and new thinking, and it is critical to our success. Deloitte has a long-standing commitment to the LGBT community and celebrates the value this diversity brings to our workplace, our ability to serve our clients, and our local communities. At Deloitte, we strive to create a workplace where all our professionals feel empowered to live and work honestly and openly and are comfortable being leaders."

- Deb DeHaas, Chief Inclusion Officer, Deloitte LLP

Inclusion at Deloitte goes well beyond a focus on gender and race/ethnicity to also include sexual orientation, disability, generations, cultures, military status, well-being and flexibility. It’s really about a focus on the whole person rather than a specific dimension, leading to an inclusive culture for all of our people. In turn, this provides us with a diverse workforce that possesses a variety of skills necessary to solve our clients’ complex challenges. Our inclusive culture is a source of opportunity, enrichment and new thinking, and is why Deloitte is a place where ALL leaders thrive.
