2022 Diversity, Equity + Inclusion Honoree: Company of the Year (Enterprise)




Accenture’s purpose is to deliver on the promise of technology and human ingenuity and its commitment to its people, clients and communities is to accelerate equality for all. This purpose and commitment drives Accenture’s innovation agenda, helps it deliver 360 value, and ensures the company acts as a responsible business leader. It also enables the company to attract, develop, inspire and reward top talent. And it creates an environment that unleashes innovation, allows Accenture’s 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.

Accenture’s stated ambition is to be “the most inclusive and diverse company in the world,” and the company is genuinely accelerating a culture of equality to ensure all its people feel they belong and can advance and thrive.

Transparency and accountability form the foundation on which Accenture builds trust with all of its stakeholders – clients, people, shareholders, partners and communities. The rich diversity and ingenuity of Accenture’s people – from its board of directors to its new hires, helps it deliver value for the benefit of all. In fact, in 2016, Accenture became the first professional services company to publish comprehensive data about its US workforce. Every year since, it has shared its workforce composition by gender, ethnicity and race, persons with disabilities and veterans. Among other realizations of these goals, 60% of Accenture’s board of directors are racially and ethnically diverse; and 50% of the board of directors are women.
