What we believe

Equality in the workplace has never been more relevant than it is today. In fact, our research shows that equality is a powerful multiplier of innovation and growth. It drives creativity and inspires a sense of belonging. It’s why we’re committed to championing a culture of equality. One where our people are empowered to be their best, professionally and personally.

Our diversity helps us bring unique perspectives and skills to the table. And our culture ensures we can all leverage these unique contributions to the benefit of our clients and our communities. As equals, anything is possible.

Gender equality

We believe the future workforce is an equal one. That’s why we’re committed to a gender-balanced workforce by 2025.

Persons with disabilities

Companies that embrace best practices for including more persons with disabilities in their workforce outperform their peers.

Supporting our LGBTQ+ community

We embrace authenticity at work—including sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.

The Accenture Diversity Council, which includes members of our Global Management Committee, assesses the inclusion and diversity matters we face, sets strategic direction and prioritizes our actions globally.

We believe that government laws, regulations and business practices should uphold the principles of equality and that no one should be discriminated against because of their differences, such as age, ability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, religion or sexual orientation. While laws may vary in the countries where we operate, we remain committed to an inclusive and diverse workplace.

Conduct Counts

Our vision is simple: A workplace free of harassment and violence of any kind–where people love coming to work. We believe that our employees are equally deserving of respect, dignity and the opportunity to succeed. These aren’t just words to us—they guide how we work together.

Conduct Counts is all about translating our core values into action, bringing them to life in what we do every day. We use Speak Up buttons to encourage our people to speak up when they witness or hear of misconduct in the workplace without fear of retaliation. Wearing the button shows support for an inclusive, respectful and harassment-free workplace.

"We acknowledge each person’s uniqueness, skills and contribution and embrace diversity to help drive our innovation, growth and performance."

Managing Director – Inclusion & Diversity, Canada
