How we're getting to 50/50
By 2025, we will achieve a gender balanced workforce–and by 2020, women will account for 25 percent of managing directors worldwide.
Our employees can set their start and finish times or work more hours over fewer days. They can telecommute, and we offer part-time arrangements.
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) support our women and help them build networks through the Accenture Women’s Network–a global online platform.
Developing every day
Employees have a mentor and a personalized training program. 100 percent of our women participate in mentoring and development programs.
