April 2016 Top 50 Event Sponsor | Deloitte

Deloitte has a rich history of cultivating a culture of inclusion in which all of its people have the opportunity to thrive.

From launching the first Women’s Initiative (WIN) in 1993 to the first woman chairman and the first Hispanic CEO of a large professional-services organization, Deloitte has achieved many important inclusion milestones. Today it boasts the first womn CEO, Cathy Engelbert, of any of the Big Four firms or large consultancies, and for the first time in the organization’s history, more than 50 percent of its recent incoming class of partners, principals and directors were women or minorities.

Deloitte’s inclusion efforts are inextricably linked to its overall talent strategy, enabling the organization to attract, develop and retain the best and brightest diverse talent. Recognizing that people are multi-dimensional, Deloitte has evolved its approach to inclusion in order to reflect the complexities of what makes individuals unique within the workplace. By looking beyond the traditional definitions of diversity (e.g., gender, race/ethnicity, LGBT, armed forces, disabilities), the organization is fostering a more holistic inclusive environment that encompasses generations, well-being and flexibility considerations.

Led by Chief Inclusion Officer Deb DeHaas, Deloitte is working to change the inclusion landscape across corporate America. Through such initiatives as its Emerging Leaders Development Program, diverse professionals receive coaching and leadership skill building from senior leaders and are paired with mentors and sponsors to support their continued career growth. Additionally, the Deloitte University Leadership Center for Inclusion is conducting groundbreaking research, such as “Uncovering Talent,” on the future of inclusion in the modern work world.

Deloitte’s inclusive culture is a source of opportunity, enrichment and new thinking, and is why it is a place where all leaders can thrive.


Cathy Engelbert

Chairman and CEO

“For more than 20 years, Deloitte has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to building an inclusive culture. While we are very proud of our many accomplishments around diversity and inclusion, including the fact that women and minorities accounted for 66 percent of our new hires last year, we recognize that there is a lot more work to be done. That’s why we are now taking a more holistic approach to inclusion to ensure our effort encompasses all aspects of our people’s lives and identities.”

Deb Dehaas

Chief Inclusion Officer

Inclusion is a core part of Deloitte’s culture and is inextricably linked to our overall Talent Strategy. Though we remain focused on gender, race/ethnicity and lifestyle diversity, we have broadened our definition of inclusion to now include well-being, flexibility and generations in order to create an environment in which all of our people are encouraged to bring their authentic selves to work and have an opportunity to thrive.”
