Getting to equal

Diversity is an important cornerstone of Accenture’s business. It makes us stronger and more innovative. We believe a culture of equality is one in which everyone—regardless of age, ability, ethnicity and race, gender identity and expression, religion or sexual orientation—can bring their whole selves to work and thrive.

At Accenture, our goal is to achieve a 50/50 gender split by 2025. We are well on our way to achieving this target. Building a culture of equality is not just an ethical imperative, but a business priority. If organizations want to thrive, they have to “get to equal.”

Our annual Getting to Equal research aims to uncover insights that can help organisations accelerate achieving a culture of equality. Accenture's new gender equality report explains differing perceptions on inclusive workplace culture & how leaders can drive a culture of equality.
