We all wake up every morning. Each in our own way. Some like to rise early… While others don’t. Some people jumpstart their day. Take a minute for themselves… Or share a moment together. Sometimes being attentive can make all the difference. And so can truly listening. Men and women are unique, in their own special ways. But together, we can strike the perfect balance. Creating an environment where people succeed every day. It’s diversity that makes Accenture effective, powerful, open and engaged.
For us, gender balance is key. And making it 50/50 by 2025 is our goal.

Inclusion and diversity are fundamental to our culture and core values, fostering an innovative and collaborative work environment. Having a diverse workforce of people with different talents, perspectives, abilities and experiences enables Accenture to compete effectively in the global marketplace. Gender equality is an essential element of an inclusive, innovative workplace and key to driving our competitiveness. What do we do to achieve a 50/50 balance in 2025?

Growing up, she wasn’t too keen on the fact that her father, who was a business consultant, had to work long hours. Now, just a few years later, she finds herself repeating history. Combine that with the gentleness and protective nature of her mother, and you have a clear picture of Marissa Jaggan.

BABS VAN BALLEGOOIE
For Babs van Ballegooie, it feels like she’s living in greater Europe within Maastricht. She is organized at work, but constantly finds herself looking for keys and bank cards at home. ‘My life and career have been shaped by choices I made based on feelings, rather than on strategic considerations.’
