INCLUSION & DIVERSITY


Diversity makes us stronger

WHAT WE BELIEVE

We have an unwavering commitment to inclusion and diversity. This commitment starts at the top—with our CEO and board of directors—and we expect leaders at all levels to help create and sustain an inclusive environment.

Our ambition is to be the most inclusive and diverse company in the world. We believe our diversity makes us stronger and more innovative—and we embrace diversity as a source of innovation, creativity and competitive advantage.

Inclusion and diversity are fundamental to our culture and core values at Accenture. 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.

We also believe that 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 be who they are, and be their best, professionally and personally.
