Rica Paras, Manager, Accenture Technology in Manila — who also happens to be a transgender woman — is an embodiment of resiliency and true grit. As part of the Being Greater Than series, she shares her journey from realizing her gender identity misalignment in childhood to obtaining a leadership role within Accenture, becoming a fierce advocate for LGBT rights along the way.

She now hopes her efforts will inspire companies worldwide to thrive in their leadership efforts and support of their LGBT employees. She credits the people in her life for offering the support and guidance she needed to stay strong throughout her transition. “I’ve always had supportive people in my life, from the people who guided my transformation as a teen, to my diverse and progressive colleagues,” she remarks.
