Inclusion and diversity

Overview

Inclusion and diversity are fundamental to our culture and core values, fostering an innovative, collaborative and high-energy work environment.

We don't just support diversity and workplace flexibility, we actively encourage and promote it.

Accenture Diversity Logo 2016

We believe that no one should be discriminated against because of their differences, such as age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, religion or sexual orientation. Accenture also believes government laws, regulations and business practices should uphold the principles of diversity, inclusion and equality. While laws may vary in the countries where Accenture operates, we remain committed to an inclusive and diverse workplace – where people can feel comfortable, be themselves and, as a result, be productive.

Partnership

Accenture is a proud sponsor of Queer Screen's Mardi Gras Film Festival.

We support the organisers' efforts to celebrate the diversity of sexualities and gender identities through films. Queer Screen gives filmmakers a large platform to tell stories that give the audience insight into the LGBTIQ community. We take pride in being part of the Queer Screen family and are committed to helping this event continue to grow in scope and influence in our community.

Cross Cultural Diversity

At Accenture, we celebrate our cultural diversity with global and local activities throughout the year.

A diverse workforce brings with it a broader skill base, creativity and the innovation that enables our people to focus on helping our clients achieve high performance.

We also aim to provide our employees with the resources and training they need to work effectively across cultures, either virtually or face-to-face, including tips on business etiquette in different countries.

Training is a priority in Accenture’s overall career experience, and is one of the most effective ways we make inclusion and diversity part of our culture. To educate our people about our culture, we provide a variety of training programs so they can succeed in our diverse work environment at any stage in their careers.

Persons with Disabilities

We are committed to fostering an inclusive, open and equitable environment that supports our persons with disabilities across the globe.

To build awareness and understanding of how to integrate persons with disabilities into the workplace, we sponsor networking, training and information sharing, and we encourage the provisioning of reasonable accommodations.

Some examples of initiatives Accenture has launched to support persons with disabilities include:

Watch the replay of our global International PWD Day webcast called Change your perspective. Debra Ruh, CEO & Founder of Ruh Global Communications, and Accenture leaders shared their insights and personal and professional experiences relating to how we can all collaborate to create an inclusive environment that focuses on abilities rather than disabilities. If you'd like to work at a company where everyone is valued for their unique talents, whatever their ability, visit our job listings to find a role that's right for you.

We also encourage you to join the conversation via social media. Follow @AccentureCMTY on Twitter or Like us on Facebook and use the hashtags, #ChangeYourPerspective and #PwD to see more perspectives from Accenture people around the world.

LGBT

Ensuring an inclusive environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees across the globe is an integral part of Accenture’s global inclusion and diversity strategy.

You will have the opportunity to work among 70 different nationalities within our Australian and New Zealand practice and we rank 8th in the Australian Workplace Equality Index, the definitive national benchmark on LGBTI workplace inclusion.

We are committed to raising awareness and educating all Accenture people about the LGBT community, while simultaneously supporting our LGBT employees worldwide and providing a workplace of equality. Learn more about our Accenture LGBT community, and then join us for the webcast of our panel at the World Economic Forum: Being Out There – LGBT Beyond Borders. Our panel at Davos will focus on ways of being more “out there” as a leader personally, and how we can best address the evolving international landscape of corporate LGBT issues.

Women

Every single person can use their voice to help close the gender gap.

Gender equality is a global issue and an essential element of an inclusive workplace.

Currently, women make up nearly 40% of our global workforce, and we’ve surpassed our goal to reach 40% women new hires worldwide by 2017. We know that the success of our women around the world is key to our success as a company, so we’re committed to supporting their professional goals and aspirations.

Through our women’s theme—Defining success. Your way.—we strive to provide a high-energy environment and culture where our women can thrive and define their own personal approaches to success. With an eye to the future, we are purposeful and transparent about identifying high-performing women and including them in our succession plans. Our Board of Directors includes 10 independent directors, three of whom are women, including our Lead Director, and 28% of our executives (manager and above) are women. Learn more about our unique programs to support women, and read stories from some of our more than 150,000 women in a new and ongoing series on The Huffington Post.

Encouraging women to define success their way
Great success comes when you can define your own personal approach to success. Through our global women’s theme: “Defining success. Your way”, we strive to provide an environment and culture that empowers our female staff to pursue their own individual goals and aspirations. And it’s working; women currently represent 32% of our workforce and we have a global target of employing 40% women by 2017. Currently we have equal representation of men and women within the ANZ Leadership Team.

Promoting workplace gender equality beyond Accenture
At Accenture, we’ve identified how Digital Fluency - how we embrace and use digital technologies - can accelerate opportunities for women around the world and help close workplace gender equality gaps. As such, we aim to empower women with digital skills within Accenture, and externally promote how both genders can be liberated by the flexibility that digital skills can provide.
