Accenture is committed to creating and providing an inclusive, open and equitable environment for individuals with different backgrounds, lifestyles, needs and expectations to be successful. To build awareness and understanding of issues faced by persons with disabilities, we sponsor networking, training and information sharing.

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.

ACCESSIBILITY PROGRAM

India Accessibility Council

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.

Three accessibility workstreams:

Physical Accessibility to infrastructure, emergency preparedness and travel
Technology Accessibility to assistive technology, web accessibility
Attitudinal Accessibility to accessible learning assets and disability Education
