Inclusion and diversity are fundamental to our culture and core values at Accenture. Over the years, we have strengthened our commitment to gender diversity by creating unique programs to support the growth and development of our women. The high-tech women program is a great example of our commitment to women in technology. The initiative is empowering more women to make the journey as technology architects and be part of our technology leadership. We currently have hundreds on women certified as tech architects, playing architect roles from Cloud to biometric and Cognitive technologies, and many more in the pipeline.
We have recently extended, the High-Tech Women Program to women technology professionals outside the organization. As a first step, we have created a LinkedIn group that women technology professionals can use as a platform to interact with each other, share valuable insights.
