We actively celebrate women's, LGBT and minorities' issues. Deloitte's maternity leave policy is industry leading. Sometimes I feel that awareness of men's issues could be engaged with more actively within the diversity agenda.

They promote LGBT through implementing 'bring yourself to work program' and everyone's from everywhere - in my team for example: India ,Asia ,Europe etc even our CEO is south African

Strong promotion of diversity, especially in regard to women in the workplace, which is widely advertised and followed through. I like that we aren't trying to be all things to all people, we have a strong diversity mantra but are stand-out performers in our chosen diversity field - I believe that delivers the best results

What does your company do to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds?

Proactive identification of potential candidates and open recruitment mindset.
Midlevel, Melbourne
I can't say. I was a middle-class guy from the suburbs, not less privileged by any means. But I wasn't a Harvard scholar or anything ridiculous.
Graduate, Melbourne
Open recruiting process, which is based on academic performance/life skills.
Entry level, Brisbane
My company recruits from a variety of sources, privileged background does not come into consideration. There are a mix of backgrounds.

Huge support network and mentoring programs are in place for all graduates no matter what their background
