Our LGBTI+ and Ally Network

When we can be who we are at work, there’s no limit to what we can achieve.

We’re building a culture where everyone belongs and is given equal choice and opportunity, regardless of their background or identity.

It's one thing for a business to change its logo rainbow once a year, but it’s another when they work all year round to support and celebrate diversity across policy, culture and leadership.

Taking action

StandOUT: Deloitte’s LGBTI+ and Ally Network

StandOUT is our group of LGBTI+ ‘out’ role models from a range of business units who contribute to our LGBTI+ inclusion strategy. Our initiatives support our overall goal of creating an inclusive environment where all our people feel respected, valued and included.

During the year, we celebrate days of significance like 12 Days of StandOUT, International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT), and Wear It Purple Day.
