Exploring LGBT diversity and inclusion initiatives in the professional services firms

Matthew Egan, Barbara Voss

Research output: Book/ReportReports


This research project has explored LGBTI diversity and inclusion change across all four of the Australian ‘Big 4’ professional services firms through 2018 and into 2019.
The analysis that follows does not therefore attempt to trace the impact of individual agents of change. We ultimately completed 56 interviews with a diversity of individuals including senior and more junior staff, older and younger staff, men and women, and individuals who identify as both LGBTI and ally staff. Our interview questions explored related initiatives developing within each firm, perceptions of the value of a focus on LGBTI diversity and inclusion generally, insights into factors driving related change, perceptions of how related change impact on staff and clients, thoughts on intersectionality, and other opportunities and challenges going forward.
