MOBOLISE powered by Accenture

As part of our ongoing commitment to inclusion and diversity, Accenture has partnered with MOBO, one of the UK's most prominent voices for Black creative talent to create 'MOBOLISE’. Together, we have identified an exciting opportunity that can change the game for Black representation in creative and tech industries. 'MOBOLISE' will be a digital platform to connect Black talent with the best career opportunities, within the most forward-thinking organisations in the UK.

By supporting MOBO with this platform we can drive positive change to unite and uplift talent and help them activate, accelerate and advance their careers, along with the industry as a whole, from the ground up.

As the Founding Partner, we aim to connect our extensive ecosystem of UK clients and partners with the platform so they may engage, enrol and recruit from this talent pool, thereby strengthening our responsibility to the Black community and to help both parties overcome these key barriers.

We are taking action

Below is a link to a note that Olly Benzecry, our former UKI Market Unit Lead, sent on 1st October 2020 to Accenture people in the UK that reaffirms our unwavering commitment to equality and justice for all, with zero tolerance for racism, bigotry and hate of any kind. We provide an update on the commitments we made in June: announcing new goals in the United Kingdom, mandatory training to identify and speak up about racism, and community investments to help drive change.

Taking action against racism

Black is…

We’ll remember 2020 for many reasons and one of them will be the renewed urgency around the world to stand up and stand together against racism. During our 2019 Black History Month event six of our people took to the stage to tell their personal stories about what being Black meant to them. This honest telling of individuals experiences was so powerful it had to be shared further. These films are part of Black Is, a six-film series where our people tell their stories at this crucial time. Through Black Is, members of Accenture’s African and Caribbean Network have teamed up with Black filmmakers, animators and crew from the creative industry to capture their experiences. Each film conveys the uniqueness of their individual spirit and backgrounds while illuminating moments that unite us all.

We hope you will help us raise awareness of Black experiences by watching and sharing these films about our extraordinary people.

We are committed to equal pay for equal work

At Accenture, pay equity means that all of our people receive pay that is fair and consistent when conducting similar work in comparable locations. By gender, we have achieved dollar-for-dollar, 100% pay equity, in every country where we operate. By race and ethnicity, we have likewise achieved dollar-for-dollar, 100% pay equity in countries where we collect this data (U.S., U.K., South Africa).

Additionally, in the UK we report our gender pay gap – a measure of financial gender equality that highlights any average-earnings disparity.
