Gender equality has never been an issue for Funda Haktanir, Managing Director in the Strategy & Consulting Business and with Accenture for 14 years. Although the field of Business Informatics is known for being a male domain, Funda's experience has been different. She works with many inspiring women on the client side and on the Accenture side.
Funda moved to Germany from Accenture's Istanbul office a little over a year and a half ago and is now living with her family in the heart of Munich. Since Funda has been living in Germany, she has also been confronted with prejudices, but she never let them stop her on her way. For her it was always important to stay true to herself.
Together with Accenture, she is working to promote gender equality beyond the women's quota.
At Accenture, we consistently promote a culture of diversity and equality. Women are encouraged at all stages of their careers and receive targeted support, as well as flexible working models to allow them to develop freely. "Gender Equality" is part of our corporate strategy and key to our success. For example, we aim to achieve a 50% share of women worldwide by 2025; 30% of Managing Director positions are to be held by women.
In the video, Funda tells us what she thinks about this and where she still sees potential.
