Advancing women at all levels is a firm wide priority for Deloitte. Our aim is to accelerate gender diversity and enable women to fulfil their potential and career goals.  Key initiatives supporting that goal are detailed below:

·         Reviewing our gender pay gap quarterly and reporting it to staff.

·         Quarterly reporting to management and the Board on key I&D indicators like the gender pay gap, attrition and recruitment by gender, promotions by gender, our talent pipeline progress and the composition of our business by gender at all levels.

·         Reviewing performance every 6 months, including those on parental leave.

·         14 weeks paid primary care giver’s leave.

·         Eight weeks paid partner leave.

·         Flexible working arrangements.

·         Women in Leadership workshops and mentoring across the business.
