Accenture @ GHC

Make the most of your time at the Grace Hopper Conference and join us at the following events, led by our women in tech.

Companies today are seeking to create diverse teams, but how can we create truly diverse teams if we continue to source talent from the same places? Apprentice programs address talent needs using non-traditional sources, increase workforce diversity and create opportunities for underrepresented groups. This panel will be led by Accenture’s Rachel Clausen and Arzo Aryan.
The pandemic has made healthier environments the need of the hour. At the same time, national protests around racial injustice underscore the need for technology that is conscious of people’s privacy and biases. Our future cities need smarter and more sustainable infrastructure. Through user scenarios, this talk presents a vision of how smart materials could enable more human-centric smart cities. This presentation will be led by Accenture’s Aditi Maheshwari.
Recent research reveals that half of the young women who go into tech drop out by the age of 35 – but culture change, at colleges and workplaces, can reverse that trend. Hear from Kathy Ross, Accenture, and Reshma Saujani, Girls Who Code, as they share their personal stories, reveal where they see the biggest challenges and opportunities for women in the tech industry, and what they’re personally doing to help create a tech culture that gets – and keeps women.

Creating a culture of equality

Our latest research piece on gender equality, Getting to Equal 2020: The Hidden Value of Culture Makers, has found that Leaders say a culture of equality is important, and they think their organizations are inclusive. But employees feel differently. If leaders prioritize a culture of equality now, everyone will rise. And with more gender-balanced leadership teams, workplace cultures will continue to become more inclusive.

That is why Accenture is committed to a gender-balanced workforce by 2025.
