Do you get excited about the latest technological innovations? Are you always the first one to pitch crazy ideas to your family and friends? Do you like to learn, collaborate and create your own opportunities? Do you want to work with people from different cultures and with companies across a wide range of industries?
In today's Technology industry, 82% of workers are men. Only 8% of ICT students are women.
At Accenture, only 29,2% of our Technology group are women despite the fact that we are committed to having a diverse workforce. We are determined to address this situation and achieve a gender-balanced Technology workforce at Accenture by 2025. Which is why we have launched the Tech Academy. We believe that diversity drives innovation and performance is about being yourself in a truly human working environment.
