Why It’s on the List
The firm continues to be a global and domestic leader in creating an inclusive culture and in its talent development of people from underrepresented groups.
Two of the top three highest-scored statements from Deloitte’s internal talent surveys were around inclusion. This year, Deloitte expanded its inclusion efforts beyond its Women’s Initiative (WIN) and Diversity Initiative (focused on race/ethnicity, LGBT, veterans, disabilities) to include generations, well-being and flexibility.
Its programs to help talent from underrepresented groups include its Emerging Elders Development Program, an eight-month initiative to prepare high-performing Black, Latino, Asian and American Indian leaders for the next stage in their careers. This program includes a partner, principal or director who serves as the individual’s sponsor for at least two years.
The firm has eight Business Resource Groups, which include national, regional and local leaders. The groups are used to attract talent, including a BRG referral program. The chapters host hundreds of internal and external events and help individuals with personal growth and development.
