Equality for progress
When people can unleash their full potential, real progress happens. Discover how we can accelerate equality for all to create meaningful 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.
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.
Join us as we salute the spirit of achievers from our ecosystem through our unique recognition program: Thank you for leading. We are recognizing people who have made a lasting contribution in creating a culture of equality.
Making the world a more equal place starts with each one of us. There’s a lot we can do to level the field for women through our everyday actions — whether it’s recognizing and removing unconscious bias, being vocal supporters of gender equality, questioning stereotypes or supporting women to evolve into future leaders. So, commit to equality now and create positive change.
Take your equality pledge as you navigate through the interactive journey we have created for you.

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.
