We have an unwavering commitment to diversity with the aim that each and every one of our people has a full sense of belonging within our organisation. As a business imperative, every person at Accenture has the responsibility to create and sustain an inclusive environment.
Inclusion and diversity are fundamental to our culture and core values. We believe that no one should be discriminated against because of their differences, such as age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, religion or sexual orientation. Our rich diversity makes us stronger—more innovative, more competitive and more creative, which helps us better serve our clients and our communities.
We also believe that government laws, regulations and business practices should uphold the principles of diversity, inclusion and equality. While laws may vary in the countries where Accenture operates, we remain committed to an inclusive and diverse workplace—where people can be who they are and be their best, professionally and personally.
Individuals and organisations have the power to change the world by using their voice. Join us in a worldwide conversation—#InclusionStartsWithI—around the importance of a positive, inclusive work environment.

What does closing the gender pay gap mean to you?
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. To us, it means setting our standards higher and saying, we can do better.
We know transparency equals trust, so we’re publishing our UK gender pay gap numbers. You can find them here – nearly 6 months ahead of the new law in the UK that requires companies to annually publish gender pay numbers.
