Deloitte Partners By Gender 

Deloitte has never discriminated among its employees and partners alike on the basis of gender. As a matter of fact, it has a strong focus on gender equality! (in terms of work and leadership) (Source)

Women make up 23% of the Deloitte Global Executive and 33% of the Deloitte Global Board of Directors. The firm is aiming at 40% female representation in the workplace by 2025. (Source)

At this time, Deloitte has the largest percentage of equity female partners at 24% as of March 31. This percentage has significantly increased over the years. (Source)

Deloitte’s COO David Hill said, “Our Aspiring Women’s program has been core to our success over many years and ensures we are actively developing future generations of female partners across all levels of our firm.” (Source)

I also managed to get the percentage of newly promoted female Deloitte partners in the UK, Ireland, South Asia, and the Middle East. Let’s go through these stats:

In the UK, Deloitte promoted 124 partners, with 35% of female representation (30% up from last year). This means women now make up 26% of Deloitte’s total UK partners list. 

Deloitte Ireland also promoted 14 new partners this year. Among them, 5 were women, which increased the firm’s female partner representation to 28%. While in the Middle East, new partner promotions consisted of 23% of females. (Source)

In the South Asian region, Deloitte promoted 34% of female partners this year. They also make up 67% of those who are advanced to partner status from 2020. (Source)

The latest partner promotions at Deloitte Middle East were discussed by Rana Ghandour Salhab, People and Purpose Partner at Deloitte Middle East. 

According to him, “Deloitte strives to make gender balance the norm across our organization and increase female representation in both partnership admissions and other leadership roles. This year, 24% of our promoted partners were women, and we will continue to set aspirational goals and adopt global standards spanning the entire career lifecycle—from recruitment, promotion, and succession processes to development, mentoring, sponsorship, and flexible working.” (Source)

Deloitte Partner by Ethnicity

The Deloitte Partners demographics extend beyond geography and gender. It’s also about race and ethnicity!

Deloitte has over 26% of the workforce from ethnic minority backgrounds worldwide. Among these, only 6% of partners are from different ethnicities. 

In the UK, 6% of Deloitte partners come from an ethnic minority background as of now (Though they’re aiming for 12% by 2025). The Black community represents 0.5% of the partner base, with a target of 3% by 2025. (Source)

While in the US, the firm made progress with 7.7% of Black partners. Deloitte partners from Hispanic and Latix ethnicities make up above 4.7% of the total count.

However, there is still room for improvement in the representation of Asian and other racial cohorts among Partners, Principals, and Managing Directors. By the way, Deloitte is gunning for 25% by 2025. (Source)

These stats clearly show Deloitte is committed to improving the diversity of its partner ranks. It recognizes the importance of equal representation across racial and ethnic backgrounds.

Deloitte Partners By Age

I scoured various sources, but there is no information available for the number of Deloitte partners by age. 

However, I learned that the average age of becoming a partner at the firm is 35 to 50. While the retirement age for a partner is 60 years. (Source)

This means most of the partners at Deloitte usually fall within the 35 to 60 age bracket!
