Getting to Equal: Visible Growth, Invisible Fears
Overall, the situation of LGBTIQ+ employees in the workplace has improved - at least at first glance. But our global research reveals that underneath this success, they are experiencing unseen challenges and privately held fears at work that are hindering their ability to thrive. More than half (57%) of LGBTIQ+ employees believe their gender identity or their sexual orientation has slowed their progress at work. Only 14% of LGBTIQ+ employees feel fully supported by their employer when it comes to issues like welcoming those who identify as LGBTIQ+.
At Accenture, we actively support the LGBTIQ+ community. «Bring your authentic self to work» is our motto. We promote an authentic appearance in the workplace - regardless of sexual orientation or identification.
LGBTIQ+ employees, together with employees from Human Resources and our management, create various measures that promote our culture.
An international network of LGBTIQ+ allies advocates for the equality and rights of LGBTIQ+ employees
Our Pride at Accenture community has more than 119,000 LGBTIQ+ Allies globally in more than 52 countries

"At Accenture everybody is welcome and accepted, this is my motivation to advocate for LGBTIQ+. I believe that people can develop their full potential, be authentic and creative, when they are their true self and operate in an inclusive space."
— Balázs Lovescher, LGBTIQ+ Lead Deutschland, Österreich, Schweiz
