Inclusion & Diversity

Empowering persons with disabilities

We are committed to accelerating equality for all and to creating an inclusive, accessible workplace that supports Accenture persons with disabilities.

The disability inclusion advantage

Companies that embrace best practices for employing and supporting more persons with disabilities in their workforce have outperformed their peers, according to our new research, in partnership with Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities.

The 45 companies that we identified as standing out for their leadership in areas specific to disability employment and inclusion had, on average over the four-year period, 28 percent higher revenue, double the net income and 30 percent higher economic profit margins than their peers. Our analysis also revealed that U.S. GDP could get a boost of up to US$25 billion if more persons with disabilities joined the labor force.
