I look at how digital technologies can enable business functions or end users and start two-way conversations to make life better for people.

What’s great about being a woman working in Accenture?
Accenture has made concerted efforts to ensure diversity in its hiring process. It also has programs made especially for women such as Accent on Tech Women (AoTW) and Digital Women, which bring gender awareness in the workplace. Leadership-enabling success is also a big factor; everyone works hard for the success and enablement of women.

How would you describe working in Accenture?
Interesting! There’s never a dull day working in Accenture. That’s what makes my consulting work unique.

Share something you are passionate about outside work and how your corporate career complements it?
I became passionate about child sleep consulting when I had my first daughter. Since then, I’ve attained a certification in infant and child sleep consulting and founded Precious Sleep. My years in corporate consulting have taught me how to manage clients well, conduct presentations and be professional. These skills are put to good use when I work with parents.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
After my long maternity break, I struggled to adjust back to work. But through the encouragement of my team lead, I was able to gain my confidence back. His words were simple, yet powerful: “I believe in you and you can do more than what you think you can do.” This is something that I will always treasure as part of my working experience in Accenture.

What advice would you give to a woman who's considering a career at Accenture?
Take on the challenge! Find support from the Women’s Program, where colleagues will be happy to guide you in your career journey.

I am a Sales Origination senior manager at Accenture, leading the Resources group in Thailand and handling projects in the energy industry.

How have you benefited from the Women’s Program in Accenture?
I had the chance to attend one of our Women’s Program events in Accenture in Singapore.

Jayne Ng
Senior Manager
Accenture Technology, Malaysia


Describe briefly your role in Accenture.
I am a senior manager in Accenture. I create, innovate, fix and maintain technology-related “things” for my customers who can be from different industries.

What’s great about being a woman working in technology at Accenture?
For me, women bring a certain softness and warmth to technology, which can at times be perceived as tough and cold. With my projects, I try to make the work environment better by showing empathy and taking the extra effort to get to know my people.

Jayne

Why is it important that women go into STEM fields? Why did you?
I pursued a technology career because it’s cool! Technology is pervasive in almost every aspect of our lives. Stereotypes about women’s abilities and their role in the family often keep them from pursuing STEM careers. I think women should breakaway from this mold and evolve with the fast-paced and ever-changing technology world.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Do not be afraid to try new things and move out of your comfort zone. This is what I did and I’m proud to say that I have done many different types of work, in different industries and excelled in them all.
