    There’s tremendous opportunity for business to make a meaningful impact in India by helping create pathways for women of all ages to fulfill their aspirations, including entrepreneurship and business ownership. For India to compete effectively on the global stage and realize its full potential, businesses need to help invest in high-impact solutions now—solutions that enable girls and women to access quality education and develop the skills needed to succeed. Through WorldClass, Deloitte’s commitment to help 50 million people succeed in the new economy, we intend to help drive transformational change and positively impact 10 million women and girls in India by 2030 by enabling access to education, skills development (including entrepreneurial skills), and job opportunities.

  • Today’s leaders can also learn from another pioneer and adventurer: Sir Edmund Hillary, who made two crucial decisions in his ascent to Mt. Everest. First, he ensured he had adequate support by joining an expedition; and second, he partnered with a high-altitude mountaineer from Nepal. The lesson here

    Today’s leaders can also learn from another pioneer and adventurer: Sir Edmund Hillary, who made two crucial decisions in his ascent to Mt. Everest. First, he ensured he had adequate support by joining an expedition; and second, he partnered with a high-altitude mountaineer from Nepal. The lesson here is with the right support network and a dedicated expert by his side, Hillary achieved what no one else had. Complex challenges require teamwork. Leaders today should remember this when navigating the Fourth Industrial Revolution: Strategic alliances and ecosystems can take you to new heights – or depths depending on where you’re going.

  • When nearly 200 influential CEOs can agree on the need for change, it could be a sign the change was long overdue. The fact is, business cannot succeed if society fails. And it’s up to us to work together to contribute everything that business knows to address society’s most difficult challenges. At

    When nearly 200 influential CEOs can agree on the need for change, it could be a sign the change was long overdue. The fact is, business cannot succeed if society fails. And it’s up to us to work together to contribute everything that business knows to address society’s most difficult challenges. At Deloitte, we measure success by the triple bottom line of people, profit, and planet. Our purpose-first mindset fuels our growth, and I’m pleased to see we’re in good company.

  • Humankind has innovated so many remarkable achievements - from eradicating disease to walking on the moon - that it’s unfathomable it has taken so long to achieve gender equality.

    Humankind has innovated so many remarkable achievements - from eradicating disease to walking on the moon - that it’s unfathomable it has taken so long to achieve gender equality.

    At Deloitte, we not only have a global commitment to accelerate women into leadership roles but, in line with SDG 5, our WorldClass initiative aims to support 10 million girls and women in India by 2030 through education and skills development. All across the globe, Deloitte has set measurable commitments to gender inclusion internally and externally to do our part toward closing the gender pay gap.

    We are committed to holding ourselves accountable through initiatives like these, but there is still much more for us to do to create sustained change - the findings highlighted in this article plainly underscore that fact. Let’s make gender equality a crowning human achievement.

    This report’s findings speak for themselves: where there is higher representation from women, businesses succeed and innovation thrives.

    Deloitte global member firms have made commitments to gender inclusion. Our partnership with Girls Who Code funds scholarships to close the gender gap in technology. And in India, our WorldClass program aims to support 10 million girls and women by 2030 through education and skills development.

    But that’s just the start. Businesses must continuously and thoughtfully engage on issues of gender inclusion in order to truly succeed.

  • In each industrial revolution, it is true that certain jobs are eliminated, but it is also true that other jobs are created – that is, it is not always a zero-sum game. Organizations with a strong sense of purpose beyond just the bottom-line are those that tend to navigate these transitions well.

    In each industrial revolution, it is true that certain jobs are eliminated, but it is also true that other jobs are created – that is, it is not always a zero-sum game. Organizations with a strong sense of purpose beyond just the bottom-line are those that tend to navigate these transitions well.

    At Deloitte, we see technology as augmenting human work, not completely replacing it. Our WorldClass initiative aims to empower 50 million people to succeed in a rapidly changing global economy by 2030 through education and skills development.

    Businesses – working alongside policymakers, education organizations, civil society and others – must be ready to help mitigate any job displacements to ensure a more inclusive future of work.

  • It is critical that young women and girls see role models when they look at STEM career paths. At Deloitte, women lead at all levels, and we are aiming to triple the number of female partners by 2030. We provide mentorship to young women globally through our WorldClass program – everywhere from Luxembourg

    It is critical that young women and girls see role models when they look at STEM career paths. At Deloitte, women lead at all levels, and we are aiming to triple the number of female partners by 2030. We provide mentorship to young women globally through our WorldClass program – everywhere from Luxembourg, where WorldClass helps women overcome entry barriers in the financial industry, to India, where the program aims to support 10 million girls and women by 2030 through education and skills development. We all can and should do more.

  • Policymakers, economists and others are right to be concerned about the impact of new technologies, like AI, on people’s jobs. They must begin to plan now for a world where much work will be substantially augmented by new technologies. And business must step up to help. At Deloitte, we are focused on

    Policymakers, economists and others are right to be concerned about the impact of new technologies, like AI, on people’s jobs. They must begin to plan now for a world where much work will be substantially augmented by new technologies. And business must step up to help. At Deloitte, we are focused on helping people succeed in this new world of work through global initiatives such as WorldClass, which aims to prepare 50 million futures for a world of opportunity through education and skills development. If business acts proactively, it can help mold the future of work—one that is inclusive, ethical and offers opportunity for all.

  • Creating 10 million new jobs a year just to keep pace with the potential workforce is one side of the coin—the other is job readiness. While it’s good news the Fourth Industrial Revolution has accelerated the digitization of India’s economy and is creating new jobs, the fact is, workers need the right

    Creating 10 million new jobs a year just to keep pace with the potential workforce is one side of the coin—the other is job readiness. While it’s good news the Fourth Industrial Revolution has accelerated the digitization of India’s economy and is creating new jobs, the fact is, workers need the right skills in order to fill these roles. And there’s some debate about how they’ll develop those skills. In our latest Millennial Survey (launching next month) global respondents said business has the greatest responsibility for preparing workers, followed by educational institutions. (Government actually bore the least responsibility in the eyes of millennial and GenZ workers.) If business does its part, we can change the course of humanity—and the time is now.

  • It’s clear that Industry 4.0 technologies like AI are already transforming the workplace.

    It’s clear that Industry 4.0 technologies like AI are already transforming the workplace. As we begin to address its impact on the workforce and the growing skills gap, a critical question comes to mind: Who bears the responsibility of reskilling? Does the onus lie solely with business? In our latest Industry 4.0 research, surveyed executives ranked government and individuals as having the most responsibility for preparing workers. Yet eight out of 10 respondents in our 2018 Millennial Survey suggested that the onus rested with business. In order to effectively prepare the workforce for the future, individuals, educators, business, and government should collaborate and rise to the challenge. Business must also embrace the growing trend of "employer as educator.
