Accenture strives to maximize the value of our supplier relationships and places a high value on diversity as evidenced by our ongoing programs to attract, retain and advance women, minorities and other diverse groups. Since 2002, when Accenture’s Supplier Diversity Program was formalized, we have focused on expanding our source of diverse suppliers while maintaining our standards for providing high-quality service delivery.
It is the policy of Accenture that diverse suppliers should have equal opportunity to participate in the procurement sourcing process. In doing this, we strive to meet our objectives to:
Expand the presence of diverse suppliers in our supplier base, as well as encourage our large suppliers to leverage an inclusive list of suppliers on Accenture’s behalf.
Increase the number of suppliers in our contracting relationships on behalf of our clients.
Create an infrastructure for shared relationships to jointly market.
Promote economic growth for a multitude of businesses.
It is the responsibility of all Accenture employees to be inclusive in their daily business decisions when selecting the best suppliers for our company.
