Neurodiversity at Deloitte

Deloitte is focused on providing workplace environments in which our people can thrive.

Deloitte’s global neurodiversity inclusion strategy focuses on enablers of success - across the entire career lifecycle. 

Inclusão da neurodiversidade na Deloitte

Na Deloitte, reconhecemos que toda a gente tem pontos fortes e dificuldades pessoais mas, para algumas pessoas, a variação entre esses pontos fortes e desafios é mais acentuada. A neurodiversidade – também designada por neurodivergência – está relacionada com a diversidade das mentes humanas; o leque de diferenças na forma como os cérebros das pessoas funcionam e processam a informação. A inclusão da neurodiversidade abraça e dá as boas-vindas a estas diferenças e reconhece que as pessoas que pensam de formas diferentes trazem pontos fortes e vantagens.

A nossa estratégia é complementada pelo foco global da Deloitte na promoção de uma cultura inclusiva no local de trabalho, assente no respeito. Este foco inclui os premiados filmes educativos Can you see me? da Deloitte Global, que apresentam histórias de indivíduos de grupos sub-representados,.

Here’s some ways we are taking action

In addition to our global strategy, Deloitte firms have launched a number of awareness-building, coaching and education programmes to help enable neurodivergent professionals reach their full career potential, as well as to support skills development and career progression. 

Many Deloitte firms are also committed to funding scholarships and offering apprenticeships to neurodivergent people and those with disabilities, such as the Deloitte US Neurodiversity@Deloitte programme which comprises a three-month apprenticeship with an opportunity for full-time employment.

A number of Deloitte firms have collaborated with specialised organisations to support the recruitment of neurodiverse people. This includes Deloitte UK working with Auticon, Deloitte Canada working with Auticon and Ready, Willing & Able and Deloitte Belgium working with Autimatic.

Several Deloitte firms have employee resource groups dedicated to neurodiversity and disability inclusion to help foster community and allyship, including raising awareness of neurodiversity across their respective firms.

While the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities (UNCRPD)’s definition of people with disabilities includes neurodiverse variations such as autism, dyslexia and ADHD, feedback from neurodiverse colleagues tells us that they often do not self-identify as disabled. As such, Deloitte’s global ALL IN diversity, equity and inclusion strategy differentiates between disability inclusion and neurodiversity.
