Canada Inclusion and Diversity

#InclusionStartsWithI

#InclusionStartsWithI began as a way to spark discussion with our people around our role in creating and fostering a positive, inclusive environment. The video touched our people deeply and helped them realize that bias can appear in both expected and unexpected ways—and that each of us has the power to make a difference and help create a workplace where it’s possible to be successful, both personally and professionally.

We invite you to watch the video and join the conversation.

OUR COMMITMENT

Bill Morris, Senior Managing Director and Canada President

We have an underlying belief in inclusion and diversity.

The diversity of our people is part of what makes Accenture exceptional. We recognize that each person has unique strengths. And by embracing those strengths, we all deliver high performance—together.

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.

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.

OUR EMPLOYEE RESOURCE GROUPS

Our culture of inclusion and diversity is fostered by our Canadian employee resource groups – vibrant communities that enable our people to strengthen their networks, grow their skills, celebrate their heritages and give back to the communities where they live and work. We have six employee resource groups in Canada with local chapters in most cities.

Learning and Development Opportunities

Training is one of the most effective ways we can make inclusion and diversity part of our culture. Accenture offers a variety of assets designed to educate individuals, promote inclusion and diversity in the workplace and prepare our people to deliver high performance through a diverse workforce.

The three themes that guide Accenture's Inclusion & Diversity education program are:

  • Educate, retain and inspire our people;

  • Enable our people to foster an inclusive environment.

GETTING TO EQUAL

We believe the future workforce is an equal workforce. That’s why we recently set a goal to achieve a gender-balanced workforce globally, with 50 percent women and 50 percent men, by 2025. This is in addition to our goal to grow the percentage of women managing directors globally to 25 percent by 2020.

With more than 150,000 women at Accenture, we know that attracting, inspiring and advancing women is critical to our success.
