||Accenture’s annual celebration of International Women’s Day, now in its ninth year, 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.
