Forty-one of the new partners are male, meaning men make up about 60 per cent of the new appointments for the 2018–19 financial year, and women 40 per cent.
This financial year, Deloitte had a total of 61 promotions to the partnership — 41 per cent were female and 59 per cent were male.
According to a spokesperson, 26.6 per cent of all Deloitte partnerships are now female.
Overall, gender diversity figures have improved for the firm. Only 33 per cent of the new partner intake in the 2015–16 financial year were women. Twenty years ago, there were only four women in the entire Deloitte partnership.
In a statement, chief executive Cindy Hook flagged a continued focus on conduct, as well as investment in growth areas of cyber risk and digital transformation.
“We are investing in people with deep sector, industry and technical expertise,” said Ms Hook.
“Investing in new partners also highlights our confidence in Australian business and the broader economy,” she added.
