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 organization. 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, ability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, religion or sexual orientation. Our rich diversity makes us 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 organizations 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.
