Alexandre Matias

Analyst, Accenture Operations

Lisbon, Portugal


"I've been with Accenture for almost two years, and I have to say that I never felt as happy at another company as I do now."

My path

I was born in 1989 in the German Black Forest to a Portuguese couple with a very humble and conservative background. By the age of 19, I moved to Lisbon since my little sensitive artistic queer self never felt at home in the south of Germany. The only access I had to people that were like me was through the media. Those were "my people". They showed me that I can take pride in who I am and that those characteristics that others would pick on were the things that made me unique and interesting. It took me a while to find the comfort in my own skin, but I can say that I finally managed to do so. At Accenture I found an inclusive environment that allows us to connect on a more personal level with people who feel the same and that makes me feel more valued as a person.

A day in my life

I've been with Accenture for almost two years, and I have to say that I never felt as happy at another company as I do now. Having this kind of initiatives where we can authentically express who we are and connect to people who have similar stories is extremely important. If you're happy and fulfilled at your workplace you will be able to work more efficiently. But that's not the only reason why this matters. The most important reason to me is that we're being respected as human beings and not just treated as little workforces. Accenture is doing an incredible job when it comes to sharing information through diversity programs and with the weCare programs, taking care of mental health topics and raising awareness.

My advice

I'd rather take a different approach and just say that communication, empathy, respect, and kindness are the key to basically everything in life. If we care about our well-being and the well-being of others, we are creating a more inclusive and happier environment. If we're happy and fulfilled we're more prone to become successful. Let's give peace a chance and let's come together through the things that we have in common, because all of us just want to be happy and loved.
