Empowering our people and communities on their journey to well-being!
Empowering the hearing impaired: Empower Run 2020
The proceeds from the third edition of the Accenture Empower Run 2020 will fund the efforts of our NGO partner—VAANI.
Established in 2005, VAANI’s vision is to empower hearing-impaired children across India to lead a full life. They do this by bringing language and communication into the children and their families’ lives through awareness programs, skill-based training programs, capacity building programs and workshops focused on social and emotional needs. This enables them to have meaningful interactions with the world around them.
At Accenture, we have always believed that a responsible approach to business is fundamental to success, protecting our people, company and clients, while differentiating us in the marketplace. The scale of our business gives us the opportunity to help shape business practices and society for the better whether by creating innovative solutions with our clients or by working alongside our partners to support the communities in which we live and work.
Journey of empower run
Our people are at the center of our culture of innovation. We believe a fit workforce is an innovative workforce—which also creates a diverse collective of engaged and motivated talent!
The annual Empower Run focuses on the physical and mental well-being of our people. This seven-city run brings alive the four pillars of the Truly Human philosophy of Body, Mind, Heart and Soul—by encouraging our people to fuel their sense of purpose by giving to the communities while fostering a sense of belonging by running for the cause of Equality.
The Empower Run offers different options for our employees at various fitness levels—the 10 km or 5 km Run, the 5 km Walk and the 2.5 km Equality Walk. Watch how the Empower Run has grown and evolved over the years from 7,800 runners to nearly double that number! Who knows—you could be a part of the biggest Empower Run yet!
