Respect. Inclusion. A feeling of belonging. Only when we are free to be our true authentic self can we contribute our best and make a difference. We long for this environment in both our personal and professional lives—and only we can create it.
At Accenture, #InclusionStartsWithI began as a way to spark discussion with our people around our role in creating and fostering a positive, inclusive environment. Bias at work can be obvious—such as denying someone a promotion because of his or her sex, ethnicity or sexual orientation. It can also be subtle—such as expecting someone to work longer hours because they don’t have children. We all deserve the chance to be successful while being ourselves.
Our people represent a multitude of cultures, ethnicities and backgrounds across the globe—and we are committed to each taking part in the effort to create a positive, inclusive work environment. At every level, we believe that a commitment to inclusion and diversity makes the company stronger, smarter and more innovative.
Inclusion and diversity is not just about gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, background, disability, culture, age and mental health. It’s about you. Its’ about me. It’s about all of us. It’s about the choices we make every day.
We invite you to watch the video and join the conversation.
