Since becoming Managing Partner for Talent in 2013, Emma has led significant change on culture and gender diversity at the firm. She designed and implemented an action plan against which Deloitte measures progress – focusing on culture and targeted interventions designed to address key challenges. Their relentless focus on culture has included embedding agile working (including the design and implementation of their award winning ‘Time Out’ programme) and ensuring that the workplace is truly inclusive. Specific interventions have included a female manager development programme and a Return to Work internship. Externally, Emma regularly speaks publicly and to clients about Deloitte’s focus on gender diversity, including being an advocate for gender pay gap reporting. She regularly comments on these topics in the national press and broadcast media. She championed the early, voluntary reporting of Deloitte’s gender pay gap in 2015 and was a private sector representative spokesperson for the GEO during the recent gender pay gap legislation launch in April 2017. In addition, she has been on the Business in the Community Gender Equality Leadership team since 2016. In 2015, Emma was named Woman of Achievement by Women in the City.
