Moving forward with equality

Each one of us have our own unique talents and when we create equal opportunities, we enable those talents to shine. I strongly believe that a culture of equality is a must if we want to move forward together.


Lakshmi Chandrasekharan

Managing Director, Lead – Human Resources, Accenture in India

Leading the change

I believe women have this innate quality to take everyone along and enable collective growth. India will make real progress when we treat our women as equal partners at home and at work. As responsible leaders, we must act now to accelerate equality.

— Sailaja Bhagavatula, Managing Director, Avanade & AMBG lead – Accenture Advanced Technology Centers, and Inclusion & Diversity Sponsor – Accenture India

Our commitment to accelerating equality for all

It enables us to attract, develop, inspire and reward top talent. And it creates an environment that unleashes innovation, allows our people to perform at their very best and underpins a culture in which everyone feels they have an equal opportunity to belong and build a career.

Enabling change for people with disabilities

Persons with disabilities are contributing immensely to organizations and societies. Recognizing their true potential, today, businesses and NGOs are playing a key role in creating spaces where persons with disabilities are empowered to be their best. NGOs such as the Yash Charitable Trust are making an impact with initiatives like Café Arpan in Mumbai, run by differently abled people. Others like Trust for Retailers & Retail Associates of India are bringing about change by training 17,000 persons with disabilities and helping as many as 75 percent of them get placed in the retail sector since 2011.

Meanwhile, at Accenture, our commitment to disability inclusion, mental health and accessibility is enabling our persons with disabilities to succeed in a barrier-free workplace.
