At Deloitte, we understand that our diversity is a key driver of our effectiveness in the market. That’s why, in FY2018, we re-committed to progressing our already strong culture of inclusion and increasing gender representation at all levels across Deloitte.

Our deeply embedded, ongoing initiatives to promote diversity and inclusion at Deloitte have proven effective.

  • Deloitte member firms have adopted progressively advanced talent initiatives—including workplace flexibility, and family leave and return-to-work policies—that attract women, parents and employees of all generations.
  • Many Deloitte member firms offer their people opportunities through global business resource groups (BRGs) to connect and build networks with others who share affinity indicators such as gender, race, religion and sexual orientation. Some member firms have also established councils that bridge gaps between single-identity workplace groups.
  • Deloitte leaders in Australia, Canada, UK, US and other countries have been recognized externally for inclusion efforts and/or serve on boards of organizations that promote inclusion.
  • Globally, Deloitte creates a safe work environment for all people through its strong policies against misconduct, inappropriate behavior or sexual harassment.

These are some of the significant reasons why Deloitte is recognized as a desirable workplace by organizations that include 
Great Place to Work, LinkedIn, National Association of Female Executives (US), The Times (UK), Glassdoor.

While we are proud of the accolades we have earned and the policies and programs we have implemented, we understand that we must change as the market and world around us change. To lead in the areas of inclusion and diversity, we must achieve more. That is why we are focusing many of our current efforts on gender representation and why we will continue to seek and hire qualified women, provide ample developmental and promotional and leadership opportunities, and remain committed to fair pay for all.

At Taj, we understand that our diversity is a strength and a key driver for effectiveness in the market. That’s why, we reaffirm our will to fight against all forms of discrimination and this in all stages of professional life.

In term of gender representation, our promotion of diversity and inclusion has proven effective. On March 6, 2013, Taj and its previous leader Gianmarco Monsellato, received the “Business Case of Action” reward during the Women’s Empowerment Principles Event. Organized by the U.N. and U.N. Women, this event was an opportunity to reward 5 companies in the world for their exemplarity in terms of gender equality and their actions in promoting diversity at all levels of the company. A fair working environment still in place today: the firm, now headed by Sophie Blégent-Delapille since 2016, has more than 60% of women among its teams.

As a Deloitte network entity, Taj can act daily in favour of social diversity in France, through the actions of the Deloitte Foundation. Created in 2008, the Foundation innovates through the co-construction of its action programs, with the main objective of creating long-term impact. It mobilizes Taj and Deloitte collaborators to carry out actions in direct contact with its beneficiaries.

Globally, Taj creates an enriching and safe work environment for all people through its promotion for equal opportunities and its policies against misconduct and inappropriate behavior. While we are proud of the diversity and inclusion culture we have implemented, we understand that, as the world change, we must continue to seek for more.
