At Accenture, we encourage our people to be their true, authentic selves while they do work that makes a difference. This means working flexibly with modified work schedules, opportunities to telecommute and part-time arrangements. We believe the future workforce is an equal one. That’s why we’re committed to a gender-balanced workforce by 2025. Attracting, inspiring and advancing women is critical to our future success and we continue to set milestones on the path to gender equality. In fact, we’re thrilled for our Global Chief Executive Officer, Julie Sweet, who was included in Forbes’ World’s 100 Most Powerful Women list.

Our Board includes members from six countries across four continents, and more than 40% are women, including our non-executive chair.
Building a diverse and inclusive workforce is core to our business strategy because we know it drives innovation. Our Getting to Equal 2019 research found that a culture of equality—the same kind of workplace environment that helps everyone advance to higher positions—is not just an ethical imperative, but a business priority too. If organizations want to thrive, they have to “get to equal.”
We are collaborating across business and government to further gender equality in the workplace, with commitments that include Paradigm for Parity, the Employers for Equal Pay Initiative and Catalyst’s CEO Champions for Change.
The many recognitions we have received for our efforts to support women include being named on the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list; DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list; Anita Borg Top Companies for Women Technologists Index; Working Mother's Best Companies for Working Mothers list; 2019 Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index; Most Diverse and Inclusive company in the world on Refinitiv’s Diversity & Inclusion Index; the LATINA Style 50 Best Companies for Latinas to Work For list; and our Global Chief Executive Officer, Julie Sweet is on Forbes’ World’s 100 Most Powerful Women list.
