Deloitte Demonstrates Commitment to Women's Issues

Deloitte & Touche has released the findings of a survey conducted late last year regarding women in elected positions, particularly as president of the United States.

According to CEO James Copeland Jr., the firm commissioned the survey to demonstrate its commitment to women's issues. The 'Women in Elected Office' survey is one of several in a series the firm plans to conduct.

Based on survey results on the first go-round, participants were generally in favor of a woman president, but have some hesitation as to whether a woman versus a man would be more effective once in office.

'At Deloitte & Touche, women are exceptional leaders and full partners in our success,' said Copeland. 'We’ve commissioned this survey to demonstrate our commitment to women becoming leaders in all aspects of American life.'
