Skills to Succeed Videos
Skills to Succeed, Accenture’s corporate citizenship initiative, helps address the global need for skills that open doors to employment and economic opportunity. It does this by drawing on two of Accenture’s unique capabilities: training talent and convening powerful partnerships to develop collaborative solutions. Together with our strategic partners, we have equipped more than half a million people with the skills to get a job or build a business—more than doubling the impact we set out to achieve when we announced our Skills to Succeed goal in 2010.
By 2015, we plan to equip 700,000 people around the world with the skills to get a job or build a business. Watch these videos to learn more about the impact we’re making in communities worldwide.
