Do you have the power to change the world?
It starts with just one person passionate to make a difference. And one becomes many when stories of inspiration and empowerment are shared and amplified among 1,400 of the brightest young leaders from around the world—including 35 delegates from Accenture—when they gather in Bogota, Colombia for the 2017 One Young World Summit October 4–7.
Our next-generation leaders from global and national companies, NGOs, universities and other forward-thinking organizations will debate, formulate and share innovative solutions to bring about positive, impactful change in their businesses—and in the world.
Only when we see the world through the eyes of another can we truly make a difference. Sharing a powerful message of inclusion and how bias can appear in both expected and unexpected ways, Accenture’s Ellyn Shook, Chief Leadership & Human Resources Officer, will discuss how a moment ignited a movement when a touching and inspirational video called Inclusion Starts with I inspired others well beyond the 425,000 Accenture people to join the conversation about diversity and acceptance.
So how do we walk the talk about inclusion? At Accenture, we think differently about how technology can be used to change lives. For the visually impaired, that means building a guided-assistant technology using artificial intelligence to enhance the way they see the world around them. It’s harnessing the power of blockchain technology to provide a digital identity solution to the 1.2 billion people worldwide who live without documented proof of existence. And it’s equipping our next generation of coders—children between the ages of 7 and 17—to engage with technology in a fun, safe and social environment.
Accenture believes in the power of inclusion, empowering our people to be their best every day—both professionally and personally. We embrace who they are. We invest in their future. We work together to make a difference in the way the world works and lives. From hundreds of employee resources groups in 120 countries to our ‘getting to equal’ pledge to achieve a gender-balanced workforce globally, with 50 percent women and 50 percent men by 2025, the diversity of our people is part of what makes Accenture exceptional. At Accenture, we have the power to lead, the knowledge to innovate and the power to transform.
