Could what happened at Google happen at the big 4 accounting firms. Google faced a controversy saying that they do not have a diverse workforce. A rogue employee wrote a memo about how Google does not value diversity of thought. Could an employee at PwC, KPMG, EY or Deloitte write a similar memo about their firm?

In light of recent controversies around diversity, do you think Deloitte regrets getting rid of their diversity programs? We discussed Deloitte ditching their diversity programs in a previous podcast. Listen to that  at http://big4accountingfirms.libsyn.com/deloitte-ditches-diversity

Additionally we go over some big 4 news around recent fines that KPMG and PwC faced in August 2017. KPMG had to pay $6 million related to their audit of Millery Energy.

Make sure to visit https://big4accountingfirms.com for more details about Deloitte and their diversity measures. 

In today's podcast we'll be discussing Deloitte's recent move to get rid of their diversity affinity groups. Deloitte is in the news recently because they are calling the quits on existing diversity groups. These groups tried to give a voice to minority groups and help these minority groups get promoted. Unfortunately these groups did not work because most of Deloitte's leadership are still old white men. Additionally, millennials do not want to be labeled as belonging to a single group. In order to keep up with the times Deloitte is going back to the drawing board on diversity.
