SPOTLIGHT ON YOUNG LEADERS

In organizations where the drivers are most common they are:

2X

More likely to advance to manager and above

2X

More likely to say they don’t plan to leave


It’s critical that companies create a truly human environment where people can be successful both professionally and personally—where they can be who they are and feel they belong, every day.

HOW WE'RE GETTING TO 50/50

Working flexibly

Our employees can set their start and finish times or work more hours over fewer days. They can telecommute from anywhere. And we offer part-time arrangements.

Getting connected

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) support our women and help them build networks. Through the Accenture Women’s Network–a global online platform–our women can share advice, insights and experiences.

Developing every day

At Accenture, everyone has a designated mentor, access to a personalized internal training portal and can sign up for training on being an inclusive leader and avoiding unconscious bias. Because of this, women make up 41 percent of total participants in mentoring and development programs.
