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.

Accenture Lived Experience
Carron Whittaker, Amy Park, Ji Yun Lee and Kristin Smith
Meet our Accenture Trailblazers, our most influential women in tech, and learn about their careers and experiences at Accenture.
I received five offers from attending GHC. Accenture was the only company that offered me opportunities to grow my career, gain technical skills, and get promoted.
My former manager brought me onto his project even though I had no experience with the software they were implementing. He believed in my ability to learn – and I have!
My advice for GHC attendees, “Never give up on your goals and dreams, a lot of people might doubt you but please don’t doubt yourself because you can achieve anything.”
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.
