Inclusion & Diversity
Our commitment to inclusion & diversity
Discover how we are creating a culture of equality in our workplace.
Accenture’s commitment to our people and to accelerating equality for all has never been more relevant than it is today – to drive our innovation agenda and act as responsible business leaders.
It enables us to attract, develop, inspire and reward top talent. And it creates an environment that unleashes innovation, allows our people to perform at their very best and underpins a culture in which everyone feels they have an equal opportunity to belong and build a career.
This commitment starts at the top with our executive chairman, chief executive officer and Board. And we expect leaders at all levels to help create and sustain a culture of equality where everyone can advance and thrive. Our areas of focus include gender, ethnicity, LGBTI, religion, persons with disabilities and cross-cultural diversity.
We strive to ensure that all our people are compensated fairly and equitably from the moment we hire them through the milestones of their careers here. When we see a disparity for any of our people, we fix it.
What’s the power of diversity? Discover how our commitment to our 505,000 people from a variety of cultures, beliefs and backgrounds makes us more innovative.
We believe the future workforce is an equal one. That’s why we’re committed to a gender-balanced workforce by 2025.
Companies that embrace best practices for including more persons with disabilities in their workforce outperform their peers.
We embrace authenticity at work–including sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.
The Accenture Global Management Committee assesses the inclusion and diversity matters we face, sets strategic direction and prioritizes our actions globally.
We believe that government laws, regulations and business practices should uphold the principles of equality and that no one should be discriminated against because of their differences, such as age, ability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, religion or sexual orientation. While laws may vary in the countries where we operate, we remain committed to an inclusive and diverse workplace.
Our commitment to a culture of equality combined with our belief that “together, we are greater than ever”, allows our more than 509,000 people in 120 countries to work as a seamless network.
By respecting all of our people’s individual cultures and unique backgrounds, we transcend geographies, drive innovation and better support our clients everywhere in the world.
