We are taking action

Below is a link to a note that Olly Benzecry, our 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.

Working to close the gender pay gap

The UK gender pay gap is a measure of financial gender equality that highlights any average-earnings disparity. To us, it is the path to eliminating gender pay gap in the UK and creating equality in the median average of men and women’s pay. It means setting our standards higher and saying, we can do better.

Accenture’s median gender pay gap in the United Kingdom is 9.8 percent, versus a UK-wide median of 17.3 percent across all companies.
