Message from Bill Morris

At Accenture, our commitment to inclusion and diversity starts at the top. Our leadership and our Canadian Diversity Council believe strongly that inclusion and diversity are essential for a high performing, talent-led organization. Quite simply, our diversity makes Accenture stronger, smarter and more innovative, which helps us better serve the needs of our clients, our people and our communities.

We take a wide view of diversity and aspire to be the company with the most inclusive and diverse workforce — because it’s the right thing to do for our people, for our business and industry, and for the communities where we live and work.

While we are pleased with the progress we have made, we are not where we want to be. We need to find new ways to make an impact. Just as we collaborate with clients to help them win in the market, we need to collaborate and connect more as an entire community to drive disruptive change.

To foster more collaboration and because transparency creates trust, we are reporting, for the first time, the demographics of our Canadian workforce for gender, visible minorities, aboriginal people and persons with disabilities. Going forward, we will report annually on our progress across these areas of diversity.

On behalf of the people of Accenture, I commit to deliver on our aspiration to be the most inclusive and diverse company, where all of our people are empowered to lead and can be successful, both professionally and personally.

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.

Celebrations of Diversity

We recognize and celebrate our differences and heritages with events throughout the year. From observing internationally-recognized days, such as International Women’s Day, National Aboriginal Day and national Mental Health Week, our people come together with our clients and our communities to learn from each other, promote understanding and be inspired.

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;
  • Develop our diverse workforce; and
  • Enable our people to foster an inclusive environment.
