Focusing on ethnic and racial diversity in the workplace

We are committed to recruiting, retaining and advancing talent from diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds and helping them thrive in the workplace.

A message from our CEO

A critical part of our success and core to who we are as a company is our unwavering commitment to inclusion and diversity, and equality for all. We live this every day because it is the right thing to do and because becoming the most inclusive and diverse company in the world has been central to our strategy.

When it comes to recognizing the diversity of our people and their unique backgrounds, we take a broad view, which includes the many different ethnic backgrounds of our people in every corner of the globe and every country where we operate. We strongly believe that recognizing the diversity of our people helps us work better together and drives greater innovation for our clients and communities.

We are taking action to fight racism inside and outside of Accenture, to create more opportunities for our communities of color and to take a stronger leadership role in our communities. We have much more to do to create sustained change at Accenture and in our communities, but we are committed to be part of the solution and will hold ourselves accountable.
