According to information obtained by Big4.com, the total investment is more than $100 million.
Echevarria spoke to the importance of women in the human capital dynamic.

"As a growing force in the talent pool—one that absolutely cannot be understated—women play a critical role in economic growth and competitiveness."
A list of the nonprofits Deloitte has helped includes the Girl Scouts, Dress for Success, Professional Business Women of California, YWCA and Women’s Initiative. Deloitte has given guidance to strategic planning, tax structuring and exemption support, risk assessment, anti-fraud consulting, IT security, financial controls, human capital strategy and management, governance and risk oversight and capital projects consulting.
