The Verdict

The Verdict

Each month we address a vital issue close to consultants' hearts.

After receiving your response, we will analyse the results in the subsequent issue. This month we respond to Deloitte’s drive to bring more women into senior positions within the industry. Despite the firm’s efforts, it still only has a handful of women at partnership level.

“Do you think that a special effort should be made to ensure that women make up 50 percent of those at partnership level?”

A. Yes, the situation at present is a disgrace.

B. Lifestyle issues should be designed in such a way that gender is irrelevant.

C. There’s nothing wrong with the status quo.

D. No, I am firmly against positive discrimination of any type.
