Deloitte’s Commitment to Diversity

At Deloitte, diversity is a source of opportunity, enrichment, and new thinking. It’s an important element of our culture and central to our 21st-century talent strategy. Our lasting success depends on it. Leaders thrive at Deloitte because ours is a welcoming workplace where authenticity and mutual respect propel business relationships within our organization and with our clients. The results-oriented approach leveraged by GLOBE & Allies, our LGBT Business Resource Group (BRG), helps exemplify how aligning diversity and business goals drives outstanding service to clients, talent recruitment and development, and overall organizational excellence.  GLOBE & Allies is a trusted advisor to leadership regarding unique issues facing LGBT professionals, a valued business development contributor, and a source of pride for all our people who identify with Deloitte as a place for rich and rewarding careers.

In addition to the work of our BRG, we hope you’ll have the chance to get to know our people while at the 2011 Out & Equal Summit in Dallas, TX.

Patrick O'Donnell

Seek out Patrick O’Donnell, Deloitte & Touche LLP principal, as he represents Deloitte on the Out & Equal National Board of Directors and has taken an active leadership role within the northeast region to mentor and guide practitioners in our profession and champion them toward professional success through networking and coaching.

Christie Smith

Christie Smith
, Deloitte Consulting LLP principal and regional sector leader for Life Sciences, is a role model for women, business leaders, and young professionals as she demonstrates how embracing a light-spirited approach to life and commitment to serving others through leadership has inspired others to be more confident and successful in the workplace.

Ken McLean

Plan to meet Ken McLean, Deloitte Consulting LLP principal and national champion for GLOBE & Allies, who is energized by working with so many talented and passionate individuals at Deloitte to continue to impact change and ensure that Deloitte will always be the employer of choice for the LGBT community.

Professionals from Deloitte Canada will be in attendance along with strong representation from the United States; we are looking forward to meeting you.

We’re eager to tell you more about what it’s like to be a Deloitte professional where leadership and professional excellence means appreciating diversity and embracing inclusion.  Our workshops will cover the impact of healthcare reform on LGBT professionals, modern families that succeed in changing times, social media and LGBT diversity in the workplace, effective global mobility practices, approaches to self-identification in the workplace, and others.  And we’ll also be hosting the Out & Equal Executive Luncheon for business leaders. Stop by our Expo “living room” and learn more about how our commitment to an inclusive workplace is more than just lip service:  we signed onto the Business Coalition for Workplace Fairness (ENDA) and the Business Coalition for Benefits Tax Equity, we carry a perfect score on the HRC Corporate Equality Index, and we believe our people are the strength of our future.

Deloitte is a proud sponsor of Out & Equal and a fervent supporter of authenticity, excellence, and leadership in the workplace.  After all, Deloitte is the place where leaders thrive.
