The G20 is the international forum bringing together the world's major economies. The involved countries account for 60% of the population of the planet and more than 80% of world GDP.

Last December, Italy assumed the G20 2021 Presidency and identified three main priorities to focus on: people, planet, prosperity.

The final summit will take place on October 30th and 31st, 2021.

Meanwhile, representatives from across the economy and civil society work together in engagement groups to submit formal recommendations to the Presidency.

This year, the engagement groups will focus on the following topics: business (B20), labour (L20), youth development (Y20), women’s empowerment (W20), urban policies (U20), sustainable development and the fight against inequalities (C20), scientific research (S20), and global governance (T20).

Accenture has been supporting G20 since 2010, by providing policy development, research and consulting services, through a dedicated team of expert consultants and researchers.

Accenture Engagement at G20 Italy

Knowledge partner

Accenture is proud to support the B20, one of the most influential G20 engagement groups, as knowledge partner for the Employment & Education task force and the special initiative on Women’s Empowerment.

As knowledge partner, Accenture will work together with Confindustria (the main association representing manufacturing and service companies in Italy), which is responsible for guiding all the activities and producing recommendations to “reshape the future” after the pandemic crisis.

Task force leadership

Our CEO, Julie Sweet is personally involved in the Employment & Education task force as co-chair.

In her role, she will provide key contributions and guidance to the development and advocacy of the policy recommendations.

Julie will work with other prominent CEOs and business organization leaders appointed by Confindustria to develop recommendations that drive growth and innovation, and ensure inclusive opportunities for all in the future of work.


B20 activities officially begin with the inception meeting. The inception meeting consists of a public event involving prominent representatives from policymaking, international organizations and major companies' CEOs, and a closed-door event, targeting B20 members only.

The inception meeting represents the kick-off of the operational work within the taskforce. From this point, task force members will interact monthly to develop the policy paper which will be completed by July and delivered to the Presidency for inclusion in the final Communiqué by the end of September.

Depending on the pace of pandemic containment, additional in-person meetings will be held to facilitate a constructive dialogue on the actions to be proposed to G20 leaders.

The final summit will be held on 7-8 October.
