Inclusion & Diversity

Discover how we are creating a culture of equality in our workplace.

What we believe

Accenture's purpose is to deliver on the promise of technology and human ingenuity and our commitment to our people, clients and communities is to accelerate equality for all. Our purpose and our commitment drives our innovation agenda, helps us deliver 360 value, and ensures we act as a responsible business leader.

It enables us to attract, develop, inspire and reward top talent. And it creates an environment that unleashes innovation, allows our people to perform at their very best and underpins a culture in which everyone feels they have an equal opportunity to belong and build a career.

This commitment starts at the top with our chair and chief executive officer and Board. And we expect leaders at all levels to help create and sustain a culture of equality where everyone can advance and thrive. Our areas of focus include gender, ethnicity, LGBTI, religion, persons with disabilities and cross-cultural diversity.

How we foster a culture of equality​

To help our people thrive, Accenture offers robust programming including specialized training, networking support, flexible work arrangements, mentoring, mental health resources, equal benefits to same-sex couples where local law permits and more. We also believe deeply in the power of trust and transparency, so we set goals, share our workforce demographics publicly in key geographies, and collect data to continuously improve and hold our leaders accountable.

We are committed to equal pay for equal work

At Accenture, pay equity means that our people receive pay that is fair and consistent when considering similarity of work, location and tenure at career level. We conduct an annual pay equity review, and our last review was conducted in November 2021. As of November 5, 2021, we have dollar-for-dollar, 100% pay equity for women compared to men, in every country where we operate (countries with de minimis headcount were excluded from the analysis). By race and ethnicity, we likewise have dollar-for-dollar, 100% pay equity in countries where we collect this data (the United States, United Kingdom and South Africa).
