Deloitte Australia has close to 6000 people located in 16 offices across the country, providing a broad range of audit, tax, consulting and financial advisory services to public and private clients.
One of the critical success factors to our growth is embracing gender diversity to win the war for talent in this country. At Deloitte we recognise that equal opportunity for women is a key driver to our sustainability and our ability to attract and retain talent.
Our Inspiring Women initiative supports our vision of remaining the professional services firm of choice for talented women. We are committed to building the leadership capability of our women, leveraging our learnings to help our clients and driving a performance culture.
The Inspiring Women’s initiative is about ‘getting our unfair share of female talent’. It is not simply about increasing the number of women we recruit. It is a planned program that has been running for nine years, focusing on supporting and developing women across the entire span of their career.
Deloitte is increasingly recognised as a leader in the use of social media. Our approach to social media – a pragmatic, professional and adventurous approach – was built on the brand values we all share, in particular empower and trust.
There are many ways we have pioneered social media channels as a firm:
• Externally through recruitment, with our clients, at events, conferences, on Twitter, Facebook and in the media and blogs.
• Internally, on our own Deloitte Innovation Academy, on our micro blogging tool, Yammer, which has several groups promoting inclusion, such as:
a) Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Intersex (LGBTI) Employees and Allies
b) Inspiring Women
c) Diversity at Deloitte
d) IDentity champions
We have empowered our staff to delve deeply into the online world. We have supported them and watched as our trust in their abilities has been rewarded. Suggestions such as “We should create a Yammer group for this” or “We should use Twitter for that” are now commonplace.
