Accenture has been named as one of the Top 10 private sector organisations for gender and race diversity and inclusion by Opportunity Now and Race for Opportunity, the gender and race diversity campaigns from Business in the Community.
The unranked Top 10 list published the results of the UK’s most comprehensive Gender and Race Benchmark. 114 public and private sector organisations submitted workforce data on gender and race, and were assessed on a range of key areas, including career progression, recruitment, supplier diversity, and senior management and board representation of women and ethnic minorities.
“Accenture is one of the organisations leading the way on creating more diverse and inclusive workplaces. Inclusion in the Top 10 is a mark of an organisation’s commitment to creating and delivering a fair experience of work for all their employees – male and female, of all ages and from all backgrounds. This achievement should encourage other employers to move the progression of diverse talent from a diversity and inclusion initiative to a core business priority and work collaboratively to ensure that opportunities for career success are available to everyone equally,” commented Business in the Community.
The Gender and Race Benchmark 2014 publishes unranked Top 10 lists for public and private sector organisations that are performing on gender and race equality and inclusion in the workplace, as well as key trends.
