Pride at Accenture

 

Our Global Pride at Accenture Network brings our LGBT community and LGBT Allies together for networking, collaboration and mentoring—providing a vibrant force to our high-performance culture.

Our local Pride at Accenture Network groups help raise awareness of – and prevent – sexual orientation or gender identity and expression discrimination at Accenture, identify how our policies may affect same-sex couples around the world, drive diverse programs and events and liaise with other local LGBT organizations and groups.

The Pride at Accenture is open to all employees. In addition, we have more than 14,000 Allies who take equal responsibility for helping make our work environment inclusive of LGBT employees.

We are committed to ensuring an inclusive environment for all employees regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.

Pride means more…

Ensuring an inclusive environment around the world is a key part of our belief that equality drives innovation.

And that is why we work to provide more for our people, including:

  • Professional development
  • Inclusive policies
  • Recruitment, promotion and retention guidelines
  • Equal benefits to same-sex couples in every country where the law permits
  • Transgender health benefits in 16 countries and more to come
  • Employee resource groups in 45 countries; and
  • A global Ally program with more than 120,000 members and growing

 

On the surface, LGBT+ employees in many parts of the world have progressed in the workplace. But our global research reveals that underneath this success, they are experiencing unseen challenges and privately held fears at work that are hindering their ability to thrive. More than half (57%) of LGBT+ employees believe their gender identity and expression or their sexual orientation has slowed their progress at work. And shockingly, only 14% of LGBT+ employees feel fully supported by their employer when it comes to issues like welcoming those who identify as LGBT+.

I have always felt comfortable being myself at Accenture – ever since day one – and so I owe it to the Pride community to help foster a workplace where LGBTI people can thrive.

It is powerful to stand up for someone else – which is why together with our Pride network and allies – we support our people to be their authentic selves at work every day.
