Deloitte Consulting partners with T200 to promote women in technology.

March 31, 2023 : Deloitte Consulting has announced its plan to join T200, a non-profit organization for women in technology. T200 was created to promote women as senior and C-suite technology executives, and with Deloitte joining in, members will now have access to Deloitte’s CIO Program experiences, which includes career coaching, tech leadership development, executive brand building, peer-to-peer networking, and board readiness.

The move comes at a time when there is a need for more gender diversity in technology teams and leadership, as research has shown that gender diversity positively impacts businesses. However, women remain underrepresented in C-suite and boardroom positions. Therefore, peer support, allyship, mentorship, and access to opportunities are critical to empowering women to move up the ranks in tech leadership.

Lou DiLorenzo, U.S. CIO Program leader and Monitor Deloitte AI and data strategy practice managing director, Deloitte Consulting LLP, noted that organizations should provide unequivocal support for women stepping into tech leadership roles in addition to recruiting and retaining talented, experienced women in technology. Through actively participating in the T200 community, Deloitte and T200 will work together to empower female tech leaders and their impact on their companies and the marketplace.

Deloitte’s CIO Program has been empowering professional development and inclusion for women in IT since 2012. Anjali Shaikh, U.S. CIO Experience Director and senior manager, Deloitte Consulting LLP, explained that Deloitte’s CIO Program, along with Monitor Deloitte’s strategy team, will focus on helping to inform and empower women in their roles as leaders, technologists, mentors, and trailblazers.

Kristen Stuart, U.S. consulting strategy leader and principal of Deloitte Consulting LLP, added that technology is at the core of leading business strategy more than ever. Deloitte’s CIO Program delivers trusted, personal experiences and relevant insights to technology leaders at the moments that matter most, helping them to deliver value with strategies that drive the future of their business and keep pace with the latest research and emerging technologies across their career lifecycles.
