Skills to succeed in India

Through Skills to Succeed we are addressing—at scale—the global need for skills that open doors to employment and economic opportunity. To date, with our strategic partners, we have equipped more than 690,000 people in India with the skills to get a job or build a business.

Since 2010, our "Skills to Succeed" initiative in India is empowering youth and women from economically weaker sections and persons with disabilities by equipping them with skills needed for high-demand job sectors. The rapid pace and scale of technological changes are disrupting labor markets and fundamentally altering the future of work. It is with these challenges in mind that we are strategizing our Corporate Citizenship efforts–Inclusion in the Digital Economy.

    Discover how we are leveraging technology to help people across India

    With the passion of our people, our technology expertise and a broad ecosystem of partners, we develop and scale innovations and programs that help address society’s pressing problems. Nearly a decade ago, we took a defining step in our corporate citizenship journey. We launched our Skills to Succeed initiative to focus Accenture’s expertise in growing talent to address the global need to close skills gaps and prepare individuals to get a job or build a business. This set a meaningful precedent for our company and for our people—a commitment to taking the best of Accenture and applying it in a concentrated, strategic way to address complex social issues.

    Today, our focus on innovating for society has grown well beyond what we envisioned when we launched Skills to Succeed.
