At Accenture, our commitment to inclusion and diversity is unwavering. We believe it makes us smarter, more competitive and more innovative—and is a key part of what makes Accenture a great place to work.
We’ve actively taken steps to improve inclusivity in the workplace, such as hosting women’s networking events across ASEAN and providing leadership development programs for women. We strive to make it easier for our employees to balance their work and personal lives by offering flexible working arrangements across ASEAN.
As an innovation-led company, we value the diversity of thought and experience that comes from across a broad spectrum of abilities, age, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and gender identity and expression.

We publish the demographics of our ASEAN workforce annually to further collaboration and innovation with our people, our clients and our communities around the critical imperative to foster greater inclusion and diversity. We also publish our demographics to hold ourselves accountable for our progress. If we want people to be intentional, take the steps that are needed, and be part of making progress, then we must be transparent about where we are and where we want to go.
In 2017, we continued to work toward our goal of achieving a global workforce of 50% women and 50% men by 2025. While our overall number of women employees, for both executives and non-executives, has increased across all our ASEAN countries, the percentage of women to men dipped by 0.6 percentage point in Singapore to 35.7% women from 2017 to 2016 and by 3.9% percentage point to 37.9% in Indonesia in the same period. We continue to actively recruit to balance our gender mix and remain committed to creating a workplace where all of our people feel they belong and can be successful, both professionally and personally.
