How long have you been with Accenture?
It has been more than a year with the firm.
Can you share a little bit about what it is that you do and what a typical day for you is like?
A typical day involves discussions with business owners—mid to senior-level management—developing new ideas/solutions and overseeing the implementation of ideas. As my role requires me to multitask at various levels, the day generally begins with creating a to-do list and working my way through the same during the day. The fun and challenging part is that the list never ends as the additions to the list are more than deletions.
What is it that you enjoy most about your current job?
It is the people. There is an immense amount of intellectual capital at your disposal that there is hardly a day when you do not head home wiser.
How did you decide to go into this profession?
Three things drew me to the profession
Learning: A thinking man’s business where you need to constantly upskill yourself to stay relevant
Exploring new things: Gives you the option to work on problems across industries;
Travelling: a higher chance for you to figure out your sweet spot Travelling and meeting smart people

Would you say from your own experience, that you’ve seen improvements in diversity over the years?
