We want to continue to ensure our LGBTQI team members and guests are welcomed and feel part of the thrilling experiences on offer.

Deloitte is a firm which proudly fosters an environment of diversity and inclusion; we are building a culture where all our employees can come to work with their authentic selves and not have to worry about whether they won’t be accepted due to their race, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity.

By creating a workplace where everyone feels the psychological safety that allows them to be who they are – with ease – it increases employee engagement, drives creativity and innovation and ultimately, gives Deloitte the edge to deliver more for our clients.

GLOBE is Deloitte Australia’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex (LGBTI) leadership forum and member community. GLOBE’s vision is to create an inclusive work environment where our LGBTI people can be their authentic selves and set out to achieve their career goals regardless of how they identify.

 Diversity in Defence means respect for individual difference. It means valuing and utilising the unique knowledge, skills and attributes that our people bring to their work. Diversity reflects the variety of personal experience that arises from differences of culture and circumstance. We maximise our capability by drawing on the diversity of our people.

Inclusion means fostering a work environment where individual differences – whatever they may be – are appreciated and valued as characteristics that enhance our work environment, our productivity and our capability.

Diversity and inclusion in Defence is a critical capability issue. The Defence organisation of the 21st Century must harness the broadest talents if we are to remain fully ready to defend Australia. In the competitive labour market for talent in Australia and with a globalised workplace Defence can no longer rely on a workforce drawn from a narrow pool of talent.

Diversity – of thought, culture, background, gender, race, sexual orientation and language — is crucial to innovation, inherent to our humanity, and paramount to creating a workplace that’s global, free and welcoming. For 2017, Dell ranks No. 26 on Diversity Inc.’s list of Top 50 Companies. Our commitment to inclusiveness at all career levels, in all corners of the world, helps us continue our tradition of forward thinking and differentiates us as a great place to work — no matter who you are.



 The world of work is changing. Technology, globalisation, generational shifts and people’s expectations all shape the workplace of today.

At PwC we foster an inclusive culture which embraces differences – one that allows us to live our values every day, be ourselves and to feel empowered to realise and discover our potential. Because we know that when people from different backgrounds and different points of view work together they create the greatest value – for our business, our clients and society.
