Diversity is a Source of Opportunity at Deloitte

Deloitte, the professional services firm, is the only “Big Four” organization to have an external council which focuses exclusively on inclusion and diversity issues. Deloitte’s Inclusion External Advisory Council is an independent group of influential business, academia, government and community leaders that meet with Deloitte’s senior business leaders three times a year to develop, implement and critique Deloitte’s diversity initiatives.

Deloitte's work in this area has not gone unnoticed. Deloitte is a perennial on Fortune’s list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For; DiversityInc’s Top 50; and Working Mother Media’s “Best Companies for Working Mothers” and the “Best Companies for Multicultural Women.” Since 2006, Deloitte has received perfect scores on the Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC) Corporate Equality Index, in recognition of LGBT-friendly policies, and has been named one of G.I. Jobs “Top 100 Military Friendly Employers.” Deloitte has also been honored twice with the Catalyst award, which recognizes innovative, effective, and measurable initiatives from organizations that support and advance women in business.
