Skills to Succeed equips people with the skills that open doors to employment and economic opportunity.
As the cornerstone of our commitment to corporate citizenship, it draws on two of Accenture’s unique capabilities: training talent and convening powerful partnerships to achieve tangible, measurable results. Together with our strategic partners, we have equipped more than 800,000 people with workplace and entrepreneurial skills—more than tripling the impact we set out to achieve when we first established our Skills to Succeed goal in 2010.
By the end of fiscal 2020, together with our strategic partners, we will pursue the following targets:
Demand-led skilling: Equip more than 3 million people with the skills to get a job or build a business
Employment and entrepreneurship outcomes: Increase our focus on the successful transition from skill-building programs to sustainable jobs and businesses, and improve our collective ability to measure and report on these outcomes
Collaboration for systemic change: Bring together organizations across sectors to create large-scale, lasting solutions aimed at closing global employment gaps.
Since fiscal 2011, Accenture and the Accenture Foundations have contributed more than US$220 million to support our corporate citizenship efforts, including Skills to Succeed, through cash as well as pro bono contributions of time and Accenture employee skills.
