Accenture Recognizes International
Women’s Day

Image of Women Occurring annually since 2005, Accenture’s International Women’s Day celebration has become widely recognized as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to maintaining a diverse workforce and building confident individuals. This is a key ingredient of the unique way we help our clients and our company achieve high performance. International Women’s Day is designated by the United Nations to recognize women’s contributions to the world’s economy.

Our tenth consecutive year of International Women’s Day celebrations will occur on March 7. This year’s theme, “Knowing and Growing Your Career Capital” inspires employees, clients, recruits and alumnae to think about how they can evolve by building skills, gaining new experiences and expanding networks.
