When Jane Allen was appointed chief diversity officer at Deloitte Canada in 2008, there was plenty of work to do.

While the firm had a national council, and some local councils around diversity and inclusion, the issues weren’t being talked about enough throughout the organization, she said.

There was a need to boost awareness and increase communication through an internal web presence and speaking engagements. The transformation effort meant talking to people about what Deloitte was attempting to do, said Allen.
