We are committed to ensuring an inclusive environment for our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees across the globe. Embracing our diverse culture and inspiring collaboration is key to the way we do things at Accenture.
We are dedicated to raising awareness and educating our Accenture people about the LGBT community, while simultaneously supporting our LGBT employees worldwide. This commitment reflects our core values, which shape our culture, define our character, and foster our ability to help our clients achieve high performance.
We adhere to strict non-discrimination and meritocracy policies and provide a clear, open line of communication between employees and management. Recognizing that individual countries may have unique laws affecting the LGBT community, we work to ensure that our global policies and practices have their intended effect in all the geographies in which we operate.
To increase the engagement of our LGBT employees in local communities and geographies, we sponsor a global Pride at Accenture Network and offer a support community for transgender employees. We also run an LGBT Ally Program where employees act as catalysts for inclusion and raise awareness for LGBT equality.
