Our workforce demographics in the United States

As part of our commitment to accelerating equality for all, each year we publish the demographics of our U.S. workforce by gender, ethnicity, persons with disabilities and veterans.

Since we began reporting our data in 2015:

  • We added more than 3,200 people of diverse backgrounds to our workforce.
  • We recruited more than 2,800 veterans and military spouses, bringing us more than halfway to our goal of hiring 5,000 by 2020.
  • We grew the number of women from just under 36 percent to nearly 38 percent, making progress toward our goal of at least 40 percent by 2020. Additionally, multicultural women make up 18 percent of our workforce, up from 16 percent.
  • We increased the percentage of African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans overall and among our executives. We also increased the number of Asian-American executives by 3.5 percentage points and are working to increase the overall percentage of Asian-Americans professionals, which decreased slightly.
  • The number of people who self-identify as persons with disabilities increased by 1.5 percentage points; persons with disabilities now represent 4.3 percent of our workforce.

Transparency remains critical to achieving our goal of being the most inclusive and diverse company. While we have made good progress, we know there is much more work to do.

Building a diverse and inclusive workforce is core to our business strategy. We are committed to creating a place where our people can bring their authentic selves to work every day.

  • Data as of December 31, 2018, and excludes Avanade, one of Accenture's consolidated entities.
  • Numbers may not add up due to rounding.
  • Accenture’s EEO-1 statement is prepared each year in accordance with the U.S. government requirements. Because the categories the U.S. government uses to identify job functions differ from our management structure and our reporting timelines, we encourage you to refer to our U.S. workforce demographics for insights into our employee base.
  • 2015 data ethnicity totals do not include unknown and denominators include unknown.
  • 2015 – 2018 data includes employees from our wholly owned Accenture Federal Services subsidiary, ASM Research. This data was included in 2017 for the first time as part of our U.S. workforce demographics. The inclusion of ASM Research increases our U.S. headcount in 2017 by approximately 1,650 employees.
