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.
Getting to equal
The future lies in a work culture of equality and a workforce in which everyone is equal. We underscore our conviction with bold goals to promote gender equality in a sustainable manner: by 2025, we want to achieve gender parity worldwide. Our current figures show that we have already come a long way. At Accenture, more than 200,000 women around the world contribute to an environment that recognises individuality, respects personal achievement and promotes responsibility.

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.
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.
Equality in the workplace
For over four years, we have been conducting research on diversity and culture in the workplace. Our "Getting to Equal" research series shows how building a culture of equality benefits both employees and businesses.
Awards and recognition
We aspire to be the employer of choice for the most innovative talents in the world. That's why we do everything in our power to create tailored conditions for our employees. We are pleased that our efforts are being recognised.
