At dentsu, we believe that our differences make us stronger. Our mission is to be a champion for meaningful progress and a force good – with and for our people, clients, consumers and communities. To achieve this, we embed diversity in our mindset, in our solutions and in our teams to empower an inclusive, equitable culture. By building equity within our teams, we aim to become better collaborators with each other and with our clients, driving better outcomes for all.

We are proud to share dentsu’s 2023 Global diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) report.

At dentsu, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) is central to our vision, “To be at the forefront of people-centered transformations that shape society”.

We believe that to deliver on our vision we must ensure that we are truly representative of the societies we serve and that our culture embraces inclusivity to drive long term, sustainable outcomes for all and growth for our clients.

It is our responsibility to empower business and societal transformation and in DEI we do this across our five global diversity themes of Gender, Anti-racism, LGBTQ+, Mental Health and Disability. We have the power to convene and change lives through, media, technology, and education not only for our people, but also our clients and wider society.

Our 2023 report is a celebration of more than 72,000 dentsu colleagues from around the world and the contributions they have made to bring diversity, equity and inclusion to life at dentsu.

Explore the 2023 DEI Report to learn how we're building diversity, equity, and inclusion into everything we do.

Grounded in commitment and action

We are committed to long-term sustainable change in society and creating a culture of fairness, equity and equality for all.

We have a clear set of global principles that govern how we operate as a business, with accountability to drive concrete action and tangible change. They are unequivocal and will ensure that racism and discrimination in any form is not tolerated in any of our markets.

Our aim is to build a diverse workforce and create a culture of opportunity. This means investing in the right places, reviewing our practices, and developing data-driven plans to help get us there.

No matter what your role is at dentsu, we all have a collective and individual responsibility to drive change and create a workplace which we’re all proud to be a part of.

Our focus in Australia

Gender Equity

Ensuring women’s effective participation at all levels of decision making will help us build a more successful and sustainable business. We are holding ourselves accountable to achieving greater gender balance across our business, which includes aiming for 50% of our senior leaders to be female by 2025.

Cultural Equity

Australia is home to the world’s oldest continuous cultures, as well as people who identify with more than 270 ancestries. We celebrate the diversity of Australian culture within our business.


We are committed to celebrating and empowering the voices of our LGBTQI+ community. Our work aims to create a safe and inclusive workplace and through our partnerships, we’re opening up more doors and pathways for LGBTQI+ people into Australia’s creative industry.

Mental Health

1 in every 5 Australians suffer from a mental illness in a given year. Our aim is to remove the stigma associated with mental health through raising awareness and providing the tools for our people to get support when they need it most.


We recognise and celebrate all our differences and are committed to putting the right mechanisms in place to ensure any of our people who are neurodivergent have the right level of support to thrive in their role.


Whether it’s the reviewing the way our offices are designed, or identifying new ways for information to be shared across our business, our aim is for dentsu to be workplace that is accessible for as many people as possible.
