The strengths of every team member are needed

Businesses can no longer afford to lose qualified talents of all genders on their corporate career paths. Ultimately, a company can only grow and be innovative through diversity. Every organisation has a duty to find ways to retain its employees and to provide the best possible support in helping them recognise and develop their potential, contribute their skills, reconcile their personal and professional goals and achieve them. The equal treatment of all people in an organisation and in society is a crucial prerequisite for each individual to be able to deploy their personality, their strengths and unique abilities to thrive business for our company and to drive innovation. Equality between all gender identities is just one important example of the considerations we also make regarding other aspects of diversity.​

"We are convinced that gender equality is essential for a high-performing and innovation-oriented organization. By 2025, we therefore aim to achieve a gender-balanced workforce that is equally balanced between men and women, while providing an environment that is free of discrimination for those whose gender is not binary."

— Jan Ising, Managing Director & Women Initiative Lead Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Russia

What we do for equal opportunities at work

We want to see that one day diversity and equality in the workplace are taken as a given. To this end, we offer all gender identities equally diverse opportunities for development and advancement.

We are flexible

Working from home, part-time work, space for personal interests: together with our employees we create an individually tailored career path.

Connected: growing and improving together

With our Accenture Women's Initiative we have established a strong network both globally and locally.

Learning and developing – every day

Mentoring programmes, career coaching, targeted professional development and much more: we make lifelong learning possible – professionally and personally.

Avoiding unconscious bias

In order to counteract stereotypes and unconscious prejudice, we sensitise HR managers, leaders and our entire workforce in training sessions.

Encouraging more women into STEM careers

We need more diverse talents in the STEM sector. That's why we have female role models in STEM professions, to inspire girls in particular to get interested in the field.

Girls digital

Handling, understanding and shaping digitisation – the aim of our Centre of Excellence is to bring STEM professions and subjects more strongly into the curriculum and foster openness, especially among girls, toward this career option and to break down barriers.
