Deakin University is one of Australia’s leading universities, with a reputation for being innovative, nimble and friendly. We aspire every day to combine excellent research and outstanding teaching with a strong focus on the communities we serve. We value diversity as a strength which enriches all aspects of academic, work and social life. ‘Inclusion’ is one of the University’s four core values and we want everyone to feel welcome, safe and supported.

Deakin University recognises the rights of our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender diverse and intersex students and employees to learn, live and work free of prejudice and discrimination, with all the essential freedoms enjoyed by other members of our University community and the broader population. Our LGBTIQ+ Plan 2017–2020 is an important part of our diversity and inclusion strategy and has been informed and driven by the University’s LGBTIQ+ community.

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 – 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.  At Dell, Diversity and Inclusion is in our DNA at Dell: it’s more than what we do; it’s who we are.  Our commitment to inclusiveness at all career levels, in all corners of the world, helps us to 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.
