We also encourage the provision of reasonable accommodations—modifications or adjustments to a job or the work environment to assure that a qualified individual with a disability has rights and privileges in employment equal to those of employees without disabilities—to create an adaptable work environment.
To facilitate a level playing field for employees who are persons with disability, Accenture formed a three-part Accessibility Council, comprising leaders who directly influence and impact accessibility and accommodation outcomes. The Council strives to make the workplace accessible by way of application software, infrastructure and sensitizing teams/managers on disability awareness and education.
Physical Accessibility to infrastructure, emergency preparedness and travel
Technology Accessibility to assistive technology, web accessibility
Attitudinal Accessibility to accessible learning assets and disability Education
For the career development of persons with disability, Accenture provides an accessible work environment, including an accessible recruitment process, focused integration and professional development opportunities along with role and disability specific interventions at different stages of their career.
Enables employees who are persons with disability gain access to Accenture's global network of senior colleagues to help them gain additional insights on career development.
Introduced in fiscal 2014, the program aims to bring together employees who are persons with disability and provides them support through networking, collaboration and mentoring. With more than 1,400 members, the Network endeavors to impart knowledge, skills and insights around the PwD program.
Accenture in India is proud to host the Disability Matters Asia Conference, the flagship event of Springboard Consulting LLC. The conference and awards ceremony celebrate global corporations leading the way in mainstreaming disability in three categories: Workforce, Workplace and/or Marketplace.
