At Accenture, we encourage our people to be their true, authentic selves while they do work that makes a difference. We believe the future workforce is an equal one. That’s why we are committed to accelerating equality for all and to creating a work environment in which every one of our 569,000+ people feel like they belong.
The need to innovate, transform and grow in the digital economy has never been greater. To meet these demands, we need people who bring their unique perspectives and skills to the table. Diversity helps us drive the disruptive change that our clients seek.
We understand that transparency throughout is critical, and in 2016, Accenture was the first professional services company to publish comprehensive U.S. workforce data. Since then, we have annually released demographics of our U.S. workforce by gender, race and ethnicity, persons with disabilities and veterans. To accelerate our progress, we publicly pledged on September 2020, new goals for increased race and ethnicity representation in our workforce overall and among managing directors in the U.S. We also launched a new mandatory training in the U.S. to support people in identifying and speaking up about racism and reinforcing what is expected of them.
We want to be part of building a better future together with other companies, with our federal, state and local government leaders, not-for-profits and the people of our communities. Join us and engage in boundaryless collaboration across the entire organization. And match your ingenuity with the latest technology to make incredible things. Together, we’ll work to harness meaningful, powerful change.
