Archived: What's Deloitte's Top Leadership Imperative

The challenge for diversity-and-inclusion programs today is figuring out how to help leaders become representative of ALL their employees, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, etc.

“It’s not about what I think I represent but what our people think I represent,” said Kelvin Womack, Principal, Deloitte, at DiversityInc Innovation Fest! Wolmack detailed Deloitte’s best practices to retain and develop talent by leveraging the connection between diversity, innovation and stronger collective thinking.

He explained how the firm improves its innovation potential and marketplace success by leveraging its inclusive culture and encouraging employees to bring their whole selves to work.
