Why It’s on the List
A long-time diversity leader, both domestically and globally, Deloitte continues its emphasis on talent development, especially for people from underrepresented groups.
The firm, which was featured at our recent Innovation Fest! for its emphasis on different dimensions of diversity, notes that its employees appreciate the inclusive corporate culture. In its recent employee survey, more than 90 percent of the respondents said they agreed that “At Deloitte, people are treated as individuals regardless of background or beliefs.”
In 2012, Deloitte expanded its inclusion programming beyond its Women’s Initiative and Diversity Initiative (e.g., race/ethnicity, LGBT, military, disabilities) to include generations, well-being and flexibility.
Signature talent-development programs include the Emerging Leaders Development Program, an eight-month, multidisciplinary, professional-development program that includes a senior-level sponsor; WINning Career Strategies/WINning New Business to develop high-potential women; Women’s Initiative Manager/Senior Manager Advisory Councils for 30 top performers; and the Ellen P. Gabriel Fellows Program for high performers to better understand the business and interact with CEO and senior leadership.
The firm has strong business-resource groups, used to enhance the talent-development initiatives. This includes a talent-referral program and campus recruiting activities, as well as relationships with professional organizations.

Chief Executive Officer
“Having spent 35 years at Deloitte, I know our inclusive environment has made us a better and smarter organization. I can tell you that having a diverse workforce and inclusive culture is integral to the success of any organization. We need to continue to raise the bar for inclusion and get to a place where advocacy groups are unnecessary. In that spirit, we recently launched our Leadership Center for Inclusion at Deloitte University, so that we may continue to develop an inclusive culture and diverse workforce.”
Chief Inclusion Officer
“We look at the life cycle of talent holistically—acquisition, retention and advancement—and have expanded our Inclusion framework beyond the traditional elements of gender and diversity to better support generations, work-life fit, and well-being. We strive to be a culture where all are provided the opportunity to thrive.”
