Managing Director – Inclusion & Diversity, Canada
At Accenture, we continue to take actions that advance our unwavering commitment to equality and justice for all, with zero tolerance for racism, bigotry and hate of any kind—within our company and in our communities.
Although we’ve made considerable progress, there is more that can and must be done. We closely examine every aspect of our workplace experience and collaborate with our Employee Resource Groups to drive change, leading to concrete steps, including developing a roadmap and long-term strategy for addressing and overcoming systemic racism in a more strategic way, setting goals to build a workforce and leadership that better reflects the diversity of our workforce in Canada, and working with Indigenous partners towards raising awareness about Indigenous communities, their rich history and culture, and the role that Accenture can play in Reconciliation.
Charting our progress
In 2016, Accenture in Canada began publishing comprehensive data about its workforce. Every year since, we’ve shared our workforce composition and currently share our demographics focusing on gender, race and ethnicity, persons with disabilities, LGBTQ2S+ and current or former military service members.
Since we began reporting our data we’ve made great strides, including:
The passion our people at Accenture have for equality and making positive, impactful change has never been stronger. This has allowed us to be recognized for the 10th consecutive year as one of Canada’s Best Diversity employers. I’m proud of what we have accomplished and yet we still have a lot of work ahead of us. We will continue to be transparent, and we will not stop until we have achieved our goal of becoming the most inclusive and diverse company in Canada.
President, Accenture Canada
As part of our unwavering commitment to inclusion and diversity, each year we publish the demographics of our Canada workforce by gender, Visible Minorities, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, military and LGBTQ2S+.
As part of Accenture’s Key I&D Priority to educate and raise awareness about Canada’s Indigenous communities and their rich history and culture, we have signed a 5-year agreement with the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund (DWF) to dedicate spaces across Accenture’s Canadian offices as ‘Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund Legacy Spaces’.
DWF is part of Gord Downie’s legacy, a commitment to improving the lives of First Peoples in Canada. In collaboration with the Wenjack Family, the goal of the Fund is to continue the conversation that began with Chanie Wenjack’s residential school story, and to aid our collective reconciliation journey through a combination of awareness, education, and action.
